I’m at the stage where I think that I need a new project/interest. All I know is that I need something new.
It’s funny because after the last few months I’ve had no time at all to do anything remotely fun. It’s all been about survival and in the lead up to Christmas it’s about doing what I would have over about 1 month, to do in 1 weekend! Oh my. Anyway that’s tomorrow’s challenge.
But in the meantime I’ve decided with another stint of maternity leave on the horizon I’m determined to put that energy into something.
[Ha! Im laughing at myself – who am I kidding, energy. What energy]
What I’m meaning is that after the first 3 months of Maternity leave with my number 1, after the newborn fuzzy days were gone and we got ourselves into a routine, I couldn’t help but get myself sucked into the drama of what was a mothers group. I can see the benefits of that companionship, don’t get me wrong, and gosh I missed my adult conversation that I’d get each day at work, I missed the problem solving and using my brain in the way that you do at work (which is different to being at home). So this time round I think for my sanity/keeping things healthy and positive that I find an interest/hobby/maybe even a part time online gig to use that little bit of downtime in a productive way.
So it’s lucky I still have 6 months to figure this out.
Do you have any ideas?
