Visual artist playing with collage, assemblage and whatever else I imagine. Homemaker and homeschooling Mom of four children aged 10 to 24. Ready to fully embrace life and leave regret and fear behind. Each new day is an opportunity to love, create and live with intention...
“Raising children is a creative endeavor, an art rather than a science.” Bruno Bettelheim
I have no idea who Bruno Bettelheim is and no time to go look it up. I just hope, whoever he is, that he knows what he’s talking about.
At this rate, raising my children may be the only creative time that I have. Only two days into “school” and I’m exhausted. I’m not managing my time very well or there really isn’t enough of it! School, home-keeping, outside job, journaling, art project, blogging, hubby-time, sleep…it’s not fitting into the day (hubby, those aren’t listed in order of importance).
It’s only day 2 – I need to remember that it’s always hectic at first until we find our pace and settle in. Everything isn’t necessarily going to get done. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize!
At least, I’m sort of maintaining a good attitude about it. Ummm, if you don’t count the meltdown I had last night. It’s all gonna be okay…and that’s a first for me.
I’m making progress with living a more intentional life. I’m setting fairly realistic goals, being flexible, and not throwing my hands up in the air and screaming. Just a quiet “Aargh”.
