The other day I wrote, “It’s morning and I have time to write!”
I’m realizing today that I could write every morning if I chose to make it happen.
Anyways, this week I did a couple of things that kind of have me turned around.
First, I created a lovely spreadsheet of our incomes and how long it will take us to accumulate $300,000 on our incomes with such and such spending habits.
We have a big income so it’s crazy to imagine how long this takes the average household.
The other thing I did this week was get serious about goals. I started posting on my instagram for mom hacks every day and I started doing duo lingo every day. I started replying to people’s texts more promptly. I stopped spending nearly as much time online shopping or scrolling social media. Basically whatever time I was spending on my phone was more productive.
But I was exhausted.
So I guess making a more mindful plan for my money and my time got me into kind of a slump.
Now I’m asking, “What is it all for?”
So, first off things that I would like to spend more time on are:
Quality time with Clark.
Getting in touch with old friends.
Discussing books with friends.
Helping people out somehow.
Reading great books.
Listening to great music.
Looking at great art.
But I do still want to work on having a clutter free, beautiful home that promotes mental and spiritual health!
But I feel like my current life feels like a hollowed out shell.
I thought I wanted to start a business of creating a bunch of goods that I think the mom market wants, that I want for sure, and then use that business for good as a b corp that donates a large amount, has great maternity leave and stuff.
But that sounds so stressful right now. But I think I still want to do it. But I also have to make time for the above list as well.
