I have really been enjoying the summer. We didn’t do any traveling but it has been some things that I wanted to accomplish this summer and some things I wanted to improve on. The summer is always the time that I seem to learn the most about myself. I don’t know why but it just is. The summer is a very challenging time for me also. But I think I learned about myself and my kids this summer.
- Thing that I learned this summer is that I am able to let go. I really struggled with both letting go of control and letting go with my kids. I did it this summer when I stepped back and let them take more responsibility in the house. They cooked dinner and then I had to let go more when I couldn’t take of to take my kids to certain places I had to trust that they could get themselves where they needed to go.
- I learned that I could stick to a workout routine. Normally when the summer hits my workout routine goes downhill but this summer I stuck to my routine. I had to wake up earlier but I did it.
- The final thing is I learned it’s okay for things to not go as planned. I have had to adjust so much this summer. I was driving my self crazy by trying to stick to a plan. I finally had to be okay with it not going my way.
This summer was pretty great. I didn’t get on the beach like I wanted to. However the biggest lesson that I learned was that. Time with family is precious. I got to spend some great time with my family. My daughter will be back in college soon and my son will be off to college after this year. Soon my babies will leave the nest and have lives of their own. So I am going to enjoy them while I have them. Well Nishe’ has kind of left already but she still comes home. But I just want to enjoy my family.
