I am getting well into my journey of balancing my business with a baby, so I wanted to give you another update now that Rowan is 8 months old. Edit: I never posted this at the time, he’s now 9.5 months old but the routine is pretty much the same, except he no longer naps in the afternoons (which is actually easier as we can do more with that time!)
I’ve been thinking recently about how the simple act of allowing yourself to have and sit with big ideas can make a huge difference to what you eventually achieve. If this sounds a bit “woo woo”, please hear me out!
Journalling is one of my favourite ways to get “unstuck” in my business. Here are 5 journalling prompts I use to help me move forward when I’m feeling overwhelmed.
As I get to grips with the idea of running my business while caring for my baby, I thought it might be helpful to record my journey with you! But I do have a massive disclaimer – if there’s one thing I’ve learnt since having a baby, it’s that all babies are different. So don’t compare your situation too much to mine. Some babies are more laid back, some require more care. Your day could look very different to mine! I really don’t want anyone to come away from this post feeling not good enough.
When we’re able to see how well other people are doing on social media, it’s very easy to get caught up in the idea that we may have left things too late to ever achieve that same level of “success”. I’ve just started something completely new myself, so I thought it’d make for an interesting blog post, about why we start new things and what we do when we feel like we’ve “missed the boat”.
One of my most defining personality traits is, I think, being a huge introvert. I don’t always go for labels, but this one fits me perfectly.
