As a mom, I find that much of my time (outside of work) is spent wiping stuff; wiping noses, wiping counters, wiping floors, wiping butts.
There’s a lot of cleaning as part of a momma’s daily tasks, but honestly, it’s not my favorite thing to do. Surprise right? The thing I do the most in my time, is not the thing I love to do. (Don’t get me wrong I do keep my house clean I just don’t LOVE breaking my back picking up socks off the floor, scrubbing the shower grout lines, folding loads and loads of laundry and things of that nature 🙂 )
To be really honest, I feel like I don’t love my job some days too. The stress of it, the time it takes away from being with family, the feeling that they don’t place value on employees, etc. it just doesn’t give me the warm fuzzies all the time.
All of that being said, I think it’s important for a person’s sanity and wellbeing to take a little time out of their day to do something they love.
Everyday I think you should do something you love, even if it’s just 15 mins! Take 15 minutes for yourself and do something that will make you happy. Maybe it will help brighten other parts of your life, or just give you the motivation to get thru the stuff you don’t love doing to get to the stuff you do like to do.
So what do I like to do?
Artsy stuff actually. I like to bake (but my waist said I can’t do this all the time!!), make beaded jewelry (after princess has gone to bed), write (obviously cause I have a blog), and I think I’m going to get into some modern calligraphy, maybe throw a little paint in the mix somewhere.
I actually got some books in the mail today that I will be reading. (My reading choices are scattered and I’m not ashamed to admit that I love reading what the bookstores classify as teen fantasy fiction: Harry Potter, Twilight, the Lunar Chronicles series etc 🙂 )
I mean when I find the time of course.
