I’ve spent much of the last few months trying to do everything and nothing very well, I knew I was doing too much but couldn’t find it in myself to give anything up. It was only last week on holiday that I sat back and realised what was really important. It doesn’t matter if I haven’t got the best photos or my house is a mess or I don’t have as many YouTube followers as I want. In 20 years time, I’m not going to be bothered about a twitter conversation with a stranger.
What is really important are the little and big people in this video, and me making the most of every second I have with them. They don’t care if my hair is a mess or I haven’t ironed my clothes, they just want to spend time with me.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the little things that you forget what really matters, and what is really important. I’m trying really hard not to let little things get to me, and be 100% present when the children are around. It’s not always easy, after all money needs to be earned and clothes need to be washed, but I’m really trying to make the most of my childfree time to do the boring stuff and I cannot wait for a Summer of fun with my little people.
These are not my best photos, some are out of focus, the background are cluttered, but it is my ‘real life’ and pretty much sums up my family. xx
P.S Apologies for the laundry shot….and yes my playroom does usually look like that.
