When my husband is home we are very family orientated, which is brilliant for sure!
But I do find it hard to keep up my work from home routine. When it is happening it doesn’t worry me, I am happy embracing a type of slow life and presence. Always the day before he leaves the realisation of deadlines and looming projects that have been sidelined by other priorities has my anxiety levels nudged. I find myself beating myself up for it, even though at the time I enjoyed doing nothing much at all.
When I was flicking through my copy of 100 Days Happier by Domonique Bertolucci* this week, I come across this fitting pearl of wisdom.
My constant Rain Man beat up is completely unnecessary and seriously unproductive.
This week’s Mummy Soul Session might be a little self-absorbed but perhaps there are times that you do the same thing?
Firm, fair and moving on is far more productive than the sads.
Do you get stuck on beating yourself up?
Do you get all Rain Man at times? Just me?
