I am an expert multitasker (trying to be :))
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
No offence to our male sparkers, but being a woman is a very demanding job. I should be an expert multitasker by the time I am finished school.
As I mentioned I am in the UK doing my Masters. The program is one year. My husband came up with me to help get us settled and the day he left I had a long cry and prayer for courage, strength and determination to get through this year. I have my two youngest daughters with me and my niece. My eldest still has 30 mths left in the states to complete her degree. Between being mothering, classes, the chapter readings, the assignment readings, individual assignments, group assignments, cleaning, cooking, exercising and making sure I stay on track with my eating - there does not seem to be enough hours in the day. It can be very overwhelming at times! But I have made up my mind that inspite of the obstacles, I am going to get the job done no matter what it takes.
My day is not unlike the average woman and we have to do this and those of you who have significant others with you, you have to make time for that relationship as well as all of the other daily activities. So if you are having a hard day, don't beat yourself up, let it go and try again the next day, and the next day until you get it the way you want it. It is in us not to give up. We can do and achieve anything that we want to once we put our minds to it.
This journey over the past 8 months has just confirmed to me what I already knew - that we are phenomenal creatures in all of our various shapes and sizes. Of course some of us deal with these demands on our being better than others, but the point is we do it and come through it. I just wanted to take this time to give us a well deserved hand.
Have a fantastic week ladies and remember:
Goals: There is no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There is no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There is no telling what will happen when you act upon them."
