There is never enough time in the day to achieve everything I want to achieve but I feel like I go through periods of time where I am refocusing my priorities and revisiting appropriate options at various times of need.
Between the kids, therapies, work, a business, a relationship, social interaction and running a household, there is not a lot of time left to work on speech, blogging, sleep or self-care. I feel bad if I’m unable to cram all of the above into one day or one week but unfortunately it is just not physically possible.
I’ve had a few people recently ask me, so what’s next? Whether I have written any more books or if anything else is in the wings? I certainly think there will be more to come in the future but at the moment I’m absolutely flat out with work, exercising for my own sanity and focusing on our kids.
Obviously, our kids have always been a main priority but apart from working to live, I’m feeling the strong need to be focusing on them.
Recently, we have changed pediatricians and began exploring other options including ADHD medication for my daughter Madi. So far it has certainly had a positive impact and I’m excited to see where else it may take us? We are encouraging more social and physical interactions and increasing independence with speech, self-care and daily living.
Presently, another main focus has been endeavoring to conquer our sleep and co-sleeping concerns. It has been an ongoing, fluctuating issue for years but I feel it’s time to revisit and attempt to address again!
I have to remind myself that it’s okay to focus on just a few things at a time. I’m attempting to do everything in my power and physically possible to make the best of our situation. Trying and trying again. You can only do what you can do in the amount of time you have. There is so much I want to do and achieve but life is exhausting attempting to achieve it all…
One step at a time. One day, one week at a time.
I also have to remind myself of how far we have come, even thought there is still so much more to work on and so much further to go…
I’m refocusing, revisiting and reminding myself that we are continually striving to achieve our goals, as hard and as exhausting as it is. Things take time and effort. They require various amounts of focus at different times depending on where we are at mentally, emotionally and financially. Unfortunately, we can’t do everything at once but it’s helping me to follow my gut feeling about what needs to be a priority at the time.
