Once Upon A List….

Transitioning to part-time jobs has been interesting so far. Getting two to align just right is like finding a needle in a hay stack but I trust in the universe and its good will towards me (hippy thought for the day). I know that if I keep applying and galloping along, movement will be had. In the meantime, lists are great and I have made myself a challenge of sorts. Last night I finally sat down, Googled famous or successful people’s morning routines and wrote out how I wanted my empty morning to go. A great list and although it moved slower than I anticipated, it moved at a perfectly relaxing pace. It started with 10 minutes of morning mediation, appreciating my aliveness. I still got everything I wanted done and in almost the order I proposed. Now the trick is to do that every day until I get into the habit. When I get another job, I’ll adjust and wake up earlier to accommodate this challenge. We shall see. My sister just informed me today, ironically, that she has started making a list every night and it has made the next day noticeably smoother. I just had to share this new challenge in case anyone else was struggling with a get up and go attitude.

Nanny Update!

This family is pretty awesome so far. The two boys, Elias(9) and Liam(4) are crazy, unique, gifted, trouble making great kids. Yesterday, I’m pretty sure we played legos for two hours straight. I built a terrible ship that fell a part before the evening was over. I did get a little tired and was keeping my eye out for a handy-dandy excuse to get up and stretch my legs, but overall the three of us seemed to enjoy ourselves and the destruction we rained down upon each other with our invincible alien pirate ninja characters. Elias loves anything and everything about planes and jets, he rattles off jet names and I just nod and smile. He also has a thing for cats. He says he thinks they are cute. Any little boy who can own having cute kittens as his background on his iPad…. is great! Liam on the other hand is very interested in everything, he hardly talks about himself but can’t wait to tell me about what his brother likes or doesn’t like or what his brother does or doesn’t do. They do tend to butt heads simply because they get in each others way as siblings often do. I think I’m getting a little attached.

    Starting a new day with morning meditation is a great way to get going in a positive mood. I hope you have been able to keep it going. 🙂
