this week's prompt: rhythm
day in, day out. i wake up, work out, eat breakfast, go to work. come home, start the laundry, make dinner, do the dishes. then its bedtime. brush teeth, read stories, kiss goodnight and eventually go to bed myself.
wake up the next day and start it all over again.
this is the rhythm of my life. it seems pretty steady and pretty simple yet in my mind it is chaos. there's not just the simple things i listed above to worry about. there's clutter. homework. dance classes. business travel. hubby's sporting events. family gatherings. the eight million other chores i can never find the time for.
how does that all fit in? how do i create a rhythm that incorporates everything i want it to.
i guess i don't. i learn to accept that not everything will get done. that at this time certain things will have to slip (like skipping my workout this morning!). but as long as the important things are taken care of, everything will turn out just fine.
i still don't feel that i've found my rhythm as a working mom. i still feel clumsy and disoriented. but i'm learning. and getting closer, i hope. in the meantime, i will enjoy the messiness of life.
