When we become parents it takes us a while to realize some big changes, one of which is the different speed of taking on new projects and completing new ideas. Before kids, we could follow-through on any idea and take on many new things at once or in simple procession. After kids, we still take on as many things, have as many ideas, and start new things just as often… yet need to grow comfortable with the fact that most things take a lot longer to finish and many projects stay unfinished for a while. It creates more clutter and stress than we are used to. But if we can understand what is happening, we can taper our new projects to suit our new ability – and more to the point, we can appreciate what is really important and love the clutter as much, and as apart of, our new life.
Say often, and with positivity. ‘I have so much time. I can do everything I want to. I have free time to do everything I love. I have spare time everyday’. Write it down on your dream board or fridge and read it several times every day.
This helps create more time in your life, it eases pressure, and you will soon start feeling amazed at how easily everything is falling into place.
