Best Summer Ever? Summer With Kids Can Be Tough

Listen to the podcast

Son of a Monkey’s Uncle, I have done it again. In an attempt to better understand my life, I have gone and completely complicated it. I’m often making things more difficult than they need to be. When and where did I get it into my head that life has to be so difficult? Mother of PEARL.

If you interviewed my heart, it would tell you that I’m having the best summer ever. If you interviewed my brain, it would tell you that I’m working very hard to iron out the kinks and I should have everything figured out in about six weeks, when the summer is over. I know I can’t stop thinking, but I’m going to think a lot about trying to stop thinking, that’s for sure.

Everything is exactly as it’s supposed to be. Everything isn’t exactly how I want it to be, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not exactly as it’s supposed to be. I’m still rocking the Gratitude Challenge and it’s been wonderful, but it’s time to pepper that with a little CTFD Challenge. More on what that means next week.

    I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
