… and so I learned what I knew
Last week was great. I loved being available for the boys. Whenever they needed me. I loved being more relaxed. More in tune with them.
I realized two things. I could totally cancel all my clients for an entire week and the world did not come to a standstill. No this does not mean that I can do this all the time BUT it does mean that I don’t have to kill myself with work like I have been. I just need to say NO more. Or say that I can’t finish stuff right away. I can only do so much in so many hours and that’s it. The rest must wait….or be delegated.
The other thing is that I need to spend more time with the boys. I think children who have either a mom / dad who can be a full-time parent must have an advantage. I want my kids to have that. From after the tax season, I’m not going to see clients in the afternoon. No more. I’ll pick my boys up from school and go home. I’ll let them play, do homework, play and spend quality time. Then I’ll work.
My number one priority right now is my boys. I changed my whole life when I had Quintus. I quit a high-paying job so that I could be there, with him, for him. With time that has changed and I have allowed myself to let the balance go in favour of work.
Yes, I need to work. I need to bring in an income. I just need to change my hours. I have my own business and I don’t see why I can’t.
