Our wishcasting wonder, Jamie has asked us today... "What fun do you wish to have?" As always...right on the money...I posted something like this yesterday.
I get so tied up in all I do..especially in the summer..as an adult...as the breadwinner..the herder of children...the planner..the cleaner..etc etc...I forget that I am ME! That I deserve a bit of fun and childlike silliness...we all do. You would think as I teach young children that this would not be a stretch for me...but seriously sometimes it is..especially in the summer. There is the child in me that just wants to play away the day at the beach..reading..making sand castles and looking for garnets with my kids!! Just nothing much of anything and lots of whatever.
Don't get me wrong...I am blessed to own my own businesses where I can be at home with my kids and have the chance to regroup my schedule for them..I adore that! The freedom to chart my own course..amazing!! But...running your own business means a lot more time and effort. I work on average an easy 60-80+ hours a week. Now granted it is not all one thing and it varies depending on which of three businesses I am talking about..but still..I am focused and not playing. So I guess for this summer...as my own kiddos are here and my daycare kiddos are here all day with me...I want them to see a lighter, silly, fun side of me. I want to relax into a whole lot of whatever and breathe and let work go for a little bit each day...a whole lot on some days. I wish to have summer fun..that is it..I wish to have summer fun!!! Whoot..Let Fly with the lemonade and water fun, art and tie dying!! What fun do you wish to have?
Namaste all, Sarah
