Not Quite Superwoman

Over the last few days I have noticed a subtle shift in the energy in our household.

Its never been bad, but since I returned to work it just felt more rushed.

I found myself waking in the morning with lists in my head off all I had to accomplish between the hours of 9am and 2:30pm.

Being in Sales my days were spent rushing around to countless appointments and quotes, I had limited hours to get my on the road work done, along with all the phone calls and business to business meetings to generate more clients, not to mention proposals and general office work.

From 3pm until bedtime, the afternoons were just as chaotic with general round the house things to get done, no need to list, we all know what running a household involves, and then obviously trying to spend quality time with Jett where I could give him 100% of my attention, patience and enthusiasm.

I felt that I was not giving 100% anywhere.

If I was with Jett I was thinking about the numerous things I had to do for work or round the house, if I was getting chores done or working I felt guilty for not spending time with Jett. Too many times I felt myself saying “give Mummy 5 more minutes”.

And this gets me back to the beginning, since showing the office job the door it seems my patience has returned from its extended holiday. Today I felt I accomplished a heck of alot more then I have in months, the fact that the Webinars I am doing are worldwide means there is no 9 to 5 work day, I can sit up with a glass of kahlua and milk (yum yum) chuck on my headphones  at night and participate in training that will teach me how to generate wealth from home or how to maximize Search Engine Options (may sound boring but don’t knock it till you try it!).

During the day I can come and go as I please, work for half an hour then take the dog for a walk, work a bit more and then spend the afternoon decorating Easter Cookies with Jett or playing Thomas the Tank Engine, Dinner? no problem! I have the time to get what I need (or in tonight’s case I’m so relaxed that its tuna and cheese toasties for everyone!) whatever I am doing I am committed to the moment  because there is no clock to follow.

And its not just me, there is an energy about Jett that if I could pick a color it would be sea green. He’s cruisy, he’s being so helpful, he’s listening to what I say, coming up and wrapping his arms around me and giving me kisses on a regular basis. I like to think that he is noticing the change in the house, and maybe me, too.

Working from home

Above is the new inhousewealth “office” , not a bad place to spend each day creating a bright future.

I’m more than happy to trade the title of Super Woman to being able to live a Super Life.

Happy Easter everyone 🙂
