Both of my kids had ‘end-of-year-itis’ and the wheels were falling off everywhere we went. From anger, hyper-activity, lethargy and just general selective hearing to anxiety, overwhelm, stress and panic, and what I like to call ‘being-a-dick’. I know a few adults who had this too ;-)
Okay guys, I've been preaching about being kind to yourself for around 5 years now...how's that going for you all?
My Facebook status gap keeps asking me: Whats on your mind Jess? - whats on my mind Facebook? I will tell you whats on my mind - WAY TOO MUCH...and everyone else has too much on their mind too, and its f*cking them up.
I just ran into a Mum this morning who said “I’m a shit Mum”…she’s not…she’s an awesome Mum on every level, who has just spent the last 3 days telling herself she's a shit Mum.
The power of the inner voice huh. It takes over. It eats up your soul.
School just called to say my son is in the sick bay and could I please collect him. I know he's not sick today, he was fit as a fiddle when he left for class, I know I am about to deal with an anxiety attack. As I pull up to school my heart breaks a little. I put my 'big girl' pants on and try to find my 'parenting hat'...
This week has been hectic. I seem to have projects all over the go. I am doing my best to stay ‘under-whelmed’ and ‘own-that-sh*t’ but, sometimes it can start to land on my shoulders and bog me down to say the least.
I find myself writing a lot of profiles lately. I love it. Any excuse to sit down and have a cuppa with someone. I find everyone interesting, everyone has a story - even if they don’t know it.
