SO...I used to have this life...not a big life, but my life. I had a career, went to yoga, made meals, went out for sushi and martini's, ran long distances, window shopped with friends...etc and had all these dreams of all the other things I would to do when:
I had more time
I had more money
I had less stress
NOW...I have this amazing baby and we have less money, time and more stress...ha ha!!!!!!!!!!
I can hardly remember what it was like before and am kicking myself for not going to Europe already and taking more trips and buying this 'too small' condo and being strapped with the overpriced mortgage way too soon and not getting my masters degree yet, and on and on.
However, now I can still do those things, they will just have to be very intentional. No more waiting for that perfect timing. I am thinking this is one of the many gifts of being a parent...now I really know (as if I didn't 'know' before) that nothing in life is going to happen with perfect timing or perfect planning (or in many cases anything remotely resembling perfect timing). Everything will simply get put off if I continue to wait for perfect timing.
So for this small moment, I am going to say 'good bye' to my old stand by of trying to be perfectly planned...maybe it will stick?
I wish naps and sushi dreams for you. Sweet dreams.
