The end of September has arrived, and so has the chilly weather.
With the change in seasons, the change in life seasons is coming as well.
We are now set to be in our house by early November, which we are happy about, but that means one more month of craziness, and I am wracking my brain to see how to cope better this second month.
I have been considering going to college again. Most applications for spring need to be in by late fall.
But many career paths are not suited for working at home.
The tides are changing and technology is making way for more flexible job opportunities.
Everyday I am reminded, though, that I have a full-time job. Raising and teaching children.
I would say mentoring, but with my frustrations and lack of outlets for stress-relief, my attitudes have not set the best example.
Now, I am trying to work through what has worked and what has not thus far. Working out helps me feel better, I know. Finding time to de-stress enough just to get going on pushing play is another story.
And, yet, I am reminded that these feelings are the same ones that led me to start this blog.
The feeling of wanting to speed up, get things done, stick to a plan.
But being reminded that there are times to slow down, tend to the here and now, and breathe.
Plan for the unexpected.
Note to self: Remember to breathe.
