Just Keep Swimming…

Sometimes, that’s what I feel like my life is like; I need to just keep swimming.

Keep going.  Just keep going, otherwise, you’ll get rolled.

Know what, though?  That’s not too fun.  When you realize all you’ve done is work, and write, and clean, and on and on, you realize how little fun you’ve had.

I like to read.  I like to write stuff I want to write.  I like to clean stuff that I want to clean.  I like to watch TV.

Someone recently gently reminded me that I needed to stop doing so much.  I didn’t like that, because well, I fancy myself Super Mom.

I decided to take heed though.  Well, somewhat.

I’ve been reading books.

I’ve been planning our next homeschool year {SO fun, can’t wait to share some stuff}.

I started a photography course.

I attempted to complete a little project with Babydoll {we were making bones from plastic molds}.

I dusted my living room.  Don’t ask me how long it’s been since I did that.

I folded AND put away laundry.

I sat outside and read.

I’ve blogged stuff I wanted to say, not what I needed to say.

I think it’s so easy for us to get caught up in everything and feel like we have to keep swimming just to keep up.

I urge you to take a step back, breathe, and do what you want to do.

After all, if Mama ain’t happy, nobody’s happy…
