Time to Re-think

FRIENDS,

Waking up at 4am is NOT the answer to finding a balance in my writing/motherhood/lack-of-time delimma. Even when my hubby was hustling about for his second-day-in-a-row fishing adventure at 4am this morning, my body refused to budge. I gave a split-second thought to the possibility of what I could do with three free hours before the babies woke, but in just another split-second I was fast asleep. Owning the most comfortable bed (that Nate and I still can't believe we have to ourselves) probably has plenty to do with it. So, today I will consider a new game plan. Thank you for lending me your thoughts on my writing/motherhood/lack-of-time dilemma. Your encouragement and ideas are great and I can't wait to try them out!

Happy Wednesday!

Well Cass, your last post made me want to be up at 4am writing with you. Then.....reality set in and I realized I can't do that with my late night working schedule and that bummed me out. I too am searching for home to explore all the areas of my creativity (without interruptions that is.)

I want you to know that many times when I am overwhelm with this adjusting time in my life and I am consumed by work, kiddos, and more work thinking I have completely left my deep solitude loving soul behind... I read your blog and I remember....it's still there.....I can still find a place in my life for that special joy. Thank you. I am forever grateful & inspired.

Love you girl.

Hi Cassie. Thanks for visiting my blog and your lovely comments. It's always a pleasure to have someone new drop in. I was just reading your last post. Sleep is my favourite thing on this earth. Sad but true. I have bought 2 new beds in 2 years and still looking for the right one. Glad you found yours! Julie

Hey Cassie,

I was impressed that you were gung-ho to get up at 4am. I think you just have to remind yourself that this is just a season of life. Having kids makes us short on time; short on time for our own activities, as well as... well everything. I am chronically late where ever we go.

I do want to say that I am not an early bird. I do take advantage of the evening hours to do the things I enjoy. Some nights I am too tired and crawl in bed right after the kids doze off.

Just remember that being a mother is the highest of all callings.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
