We can get so caught up in planning for our future that we forget about the here and now.
As I have gotten older and become a parent, it is funny how time seems to be so precious more now than when I was younger.
When I was a kid I would often dream about being an adult, and doing whatever I wanted, but now I am here I do wish I had valued the times I had as a kid, because I did take life for granted.
As you grow so does responsibilities and can become overwhelming at times, so now I do value my days and hours more.
Making everyday count is a must especially having a child of my own, I don’t want to miss a thing, so I do make the most of the here and now, rather than dreaming about being somewhere else.
Due to the summer holidays starting I am looking forward to it rather than dreading it, as there is less running around because you have to do the school run.
It is mind boggling how the time I drop Henry off at school to picking him up goes so quickly. So now I make the everyday count from the start of the week to the end of the week, and that not rushing around, but taking my time and taking in what is around me, and the time I have free now. Not next week or tomorrow, but now.
If you find yourself rushing then take a deep breath and you can shut your eyes but just count 1 to 10 and chill.
I make sure now that I have quiet time aswell as doing work and that I make time just for me, as we all need time to stop and recharge.
