Is it just me, or has this year started to rush by? All of a sudden we are close to June and the end of term is almost here. I have been studying full time, as well as doing my vocational practice and then looking after my beautiful little girl. It seems that with all of this, I am on the down hill run of my study with my assignments needing to be handed in June. I like the pressure but this is rediculous. Why is time flying by so fast?
Along with my study, I am wanting to spend time with my gorgeous daughter and ensure that she has good quality time with me – playing games, reading, walks etc. But I also need time for me. Not to study, not to be a mum, not to be an employee but just some time to rest and just be.
In this world of rushing and bustling, finding that time to just breathe is important. We need to slow down. I sometimes feel guilty when I just want some time by myself and I know that I shouldn’t and that it is part of ‘looking after yourself’, but being a single mum, it is hard to find that alone time – even when the family is asleep.
Anyway, I hope that this story rings true with other mums.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
