All At The Right Time

Haven’t seen me here for a while?

I’ve been using my precious blogging time to really listen to my kids, get some extra exercise happening, paying attention to my husband, cooking some wholesome meals (okay…at least I try) and I even sat on the couch and watched TV once.

And I’ve loved it… but I love blogging too.

I read an interview this week on Quentin Bryce, Governor General of the Commonwealth of Australia, and she drove it home for me with these words:

“Yes, you can have it all, but not all at the same time.”

I’m going to choose what matters in time right now.

I’m sure I’ll be back soon.

    There’s never a ‘right time’ for anything . There is always something else we should be doing, could be doing… Our kids need us all the time, but balanced kids learn that sometimes Moms need ‘alone-time’, and its good for them to see us respecting oursleves. That’s better for them to learn then for them to learn to be a martyr, and to give up their needs for other’s. And you need to sometimes just BE there for them, without actually DOING something for them. The right time for anything is when its right for YOU! Love that couch!!

    I hear ya! I’ve been struggling with the same thing. When I’m not blogging, I miss it and feel guilty. And when I do focus on blogging? I miss my family and free time. Such a balance, right? Let me know your secret when you get it figured out!

    I think mums have great intuition about when they need to give a little more time to them selves and their interests eg. Blogging etc.. and also when they need to pull back and give more to their family. The wisest thing to do is to go with that intuition. Often when we give more to our families we are happier I think.

  6. I hear you on this. Hope to see you back again soon!

    Miss your wonderful posts – always on the mark. It’s hard though, to fit it all in…

    I ebb and flow too – that’s life – especially as a Parent.

    I just found your site last night. Your ideas are brilliant! I’ve just started teaching a new year level, and have to teach paragraphing – thank you for some great teaching ideas. I hope (for your reader’s sakes) that you find your blogging mojo soon.
