Goals life

New Month!

February 1, 2024

Sometimes when I have something stressful going on that I can’t share (because it’s too personal, or because it’s not my story) I have a REALLY hard time writing here. Today is one of those days. I know blogging vaguely about things is extremely annoying, so I’ll clarify further that everything is overall fine, but being a kid is hard sometimes and being a parent watching it be hard is also very hard.

On a topic I can share, I am going to really try to give myself a bit of a break this month. I do think January was just a little bit much (my own recap I was scrolling through and thinking was that really only month!?) and the way I want to do that is:

  • Just assign myself LESS on any given day
  • Really try to slow down and just be less . . . frenetic as I do things

I will probably have a bit less to talk about when it comes to February happenings but I am just needing to settle into a bit of a downswing.

On that note, Feb goals below:

Let’s hope I can keep things feeling more low key than it looks (literally) on paper.

PS: Did you change your screen backgrounds yet? I love this one:

    Sending <3 your way. Being a mom is hard.

    I love the way you phrased that-being a kid is hard and watching is also hard. Hopefully whatever is going on will pass and life lessons will be learned and behind you!

    A fresh month! I really like the planning sheets. It makes me have paper envy but in the end, I’ll always revert to Notion.

    My main focus in February is getting my energy back – I started January with Covid and have been flying by the seat of my pants ever since. My son is away for a week (!!!) and I’m going to focus on getting things organised, sorted, and getting myself some proper rest since I’ll be able to sleep in at least 30 minutes each day.

    Love this! I’ve been dealing with illness & school closures for the kids, and you inspired me to make a similar list. It looks like a very successful month on paper for both of us, which was a helpful reminder for me.

    Too funny I have the same background. Not sure what is going on but kids are hard. And I’ve heard bigger kids bigger problems. And teen girls based on my own observations can be particularly hard on other people. It’s tough if you’re kid is getting the brunt of poor treatment. It physically hurts my heart sometimes. I hope whatever it is, passes quickly…

    I hear you- if one of our kids is suffering over something, we feel it. I hope things are better now. And remember- everything is okay in the end! If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

    This is why it was hard for me to dive into content creator culture. I have a family (husband, now adult child) who were anti-social media. It was hard for me to feel authentic and share what I was going through without being able to make their parts in the story public. It’s a tough balance. Anyways, whatever your kiddo is going though, I hope it all works out. <3
