Ok technically I am typing this at 1:22am on a Wednesday morning, but for the last hour I have been completely alone. Willow is asleep and so is Grant, so I’ve taken advantage of the peace and quiet. I forgot how much I needed time to myself with no distractions from anyone or anything. So so important, even though I am not sleeping right now when I should be, I feel so recharged and content. I am not frustrated nor upset about anything considering lately I have been feeling less than myself.
Literally feeling really great at this point. I put Will to bed around 8:30pm and she didn’t fuss either 🙂 After hanging out with my folks watching tv for a bit, I went into my room and finished typing up some blog posts ready to go before starting a game of Minecraft 🙂 I played from about 9pm until about an hour ago and felt like my old self again. Just had some music on in the background while grinding away in a game of Agrarian Skies (Minecraft). *exhales with relief and happiness*
This does not at all mean that I don’t love my time with Will or Grant but I’ve definitely needed some alone time. I’ve seen so many different blogs from other mums and they say how important it is to make time for yourself. In one of my posts either Part 1 or Part 2 of 18 things I look forward to in 2018, I mentioned that I wanted to make more time for myself and tonight (errr – this morning more like) I realised that I need to make more of an effort to do this.
Even whilst typing this post I have YouTube on my other monitor, watching videos that I like to watch (motherhood and makeup videos) 🙂 With some random fail army videos thrown in there somewhere. I have to mention one blog in particular because I have gone back over a re-read some of my favourite posts from this blogger. For those of you who enjoy a funny read and references (lots of references) on subjects that can sometimes be too real to face then you will love The Nerdy Lion. I suffer from anxiety and there are so many posts I’ve read that I relate to. I think I may even go back now to read some more before I doze off to sleep to get some z’s before the baby wakes from her slumber.
Talk to you guys in my next post 🙂 x
