A little step may be the beginning of a great journey
A new month a new challenge. I want to start waking up at 6 o´clock in the mornings. I want to get some quiet quality time with myself before everyone else wakes up. I can see myself using this time to meditate and practice yoga. I´ve been longing for this challenge for some time now, but with the new baby in the house I felt the sensible thing to do was to get as much sleep as possible. He´s now sleeping through the night so I´m looking forward to this challenge. The TV free nights have been a relief for me, freedom, free from mindless, empty, cheap entertainment which I still indulge in once in a while. I look forward to my TV nights but now I´m in control. I´m not quite sure what happened to the extra time this was supposed to bring me but it´s summer holiday and everything is upside down, the kids are going to bed later and we´ve been travelling. I think my girls probably gained the most from that challenge, I´m no longer irritated when they steel my attention from the TV, I´m no longer hurrying up their bedtime routine in order to finish before my show starts. I have the time for them, I can listen, I can read for them, we play cards together. Now I can´t see how I could have it any other way.
