I’m trying to do more “nothing” with my kids. You know- just BE there with them, hanging out.
This turns out to be much harder for me than it seems like it ought to be.
I feel like I need to be DOING something (because, you know, there’s always something that needs doing.) I’m working on this, thinking about it, experimenting with how it feels to be drawing or knitting while I sit near where they’re playing (not always possible with the toddler) wondering if I even need to let go of those activities as well sometimes.
In part of an effort to really be present with my kids, I am making Thursdays a low media day in my household.
A quick bite of inspiration and off we go. Get off the computer and create the life you want to be living. One little bit at a time. Tiny acts of courage- this is how we Make Things Happen.
