Don’t get me wrong, I love lists…I am a list makin’ mama! But as our days pass, especially in this ‘hurry up/be successful/grow your business/do it better’ culture, life can become a list of chores to be completed rather than what it should be- work to live, don’t live to work. I feel fortunate that I truly enjoy my ‘work’ being an artist & a mama but I enjoy it more when I let it happen the way it’s supposed to happen. I know that might not be the popular attitude to have right now. Setting goals and working hard are key ingredients to achieving success. But success without balance is just…..tiring! This day won’t come again. Make the best of it. And every once in a while, throw your list out and just wing it. It’ll all be okay. ;)
Your kids won’t remember that you got your to-do’s all checked, they will remember that you played with them.
