I kind of just want to moan about the current inner situation of my mind (and ask for some help!). Continue reading if you’re interested in the workings of my brain.
So by now, if you follow my blog or my Instagram, you should know that I have two small children (aged 3 and aged 8 months). These little human beings take up pretty much all my time. I am also a stay at home mum. I just feel like my ‘home’ is dominating my life. I mean, of course, I live in my house with my little family and this is the biggest part of my living-ness situation? BUT .. It makes me feel like I have no time for anything else! See, the weird thing is, I DO have time. I need to make time for myself to do the things I want to do like get around to reading last months issue of Harpers Bazaar (yes, that’s why it’s in the above image), or work on my blog.
The subject of ‘making time’ for myself really makes me uncomfortable because I’m fully guilty of just doing nothing in my spare time. By ‘spare’ time I mean when the kids are asleep after 8:30pm. It’s because I kind of like doing nothing and I feel like I deserve to do a bit of ‘nothing’? HOWEVER, this can not go on any longer. I feel like this ‘nothing’ I do is holding me back. I just feel like I need to use this time wisely. A bit of relaxing and recharging is obviously allowed, but I feel like I really need to organise myself and how I get things done.
I really want to get into the swing of this whole blogging thing, as I feel like I definitely don’t post enough. I have so many ideas for posts and so many things I’ve learnt that I want to share! So the aim is to start posting ATLEAST twice a week. I think that sounds like a reasonable place to start?
I also want to have one completely free day in the week where me, the husband and the kids can just chill out at home. No housework or stress. But I need to decide what day this will be and how I will make it happen!?
There are a few other things I want to fit into my week, however, I think the two things I mentioned above are enough for the time being. I know this is such a random post, but I felt like unless I let it out somehow, I’m never going to take the first step to getting myself on track with things. If any of you lovely people have any tips on getting organised in terms of blogging and social media .. Please help!? How do you use your time effectively? I’d love to know as I feel like I’m really struggling with this! Maybe I need a Planner? I don’t want a planner right now though, because the year’s almost over. I’ll get one for next year. Most definitely. (Psst.. It’s because I really want one of these Ella Iconic Planners!)
Well, moral of the story is that my current situation is I am all over the place and feel like I have no time to do anything, but I actually do have time to do things and I choose to do nothing. A bit silly, but I’m sure I’m not alone!
This just seems like a bit of an off topic post, but it’s nice to just go on about stuff sometimes in the hope that someone will read it and feel like they can relate. Anyways, I would also like to take this random opportunity to say “hello!” and “thank you” to the thirty-something number of followers I have on here now. I know it’s not a lot, but it MEANS a lot to me that you think I’m worth following! *Big smiles for you* Also, if you really want to, then please follow me on Instagram too. I am @themetimemum and if you let me know you’re from the blog I shall follow you too.
I’ll leave it at this for now, I think this is enough from me!
Love, Taslima x
