Lessons from a toddler

I wasn’t exactly feeling the motivation to do anything at the end of last week.  I didn’t work out, I didn’t eat healthy, I didn’t get my to do list done.  So Sunday night I settled in and created my plan for this week.  I scheduled chores, workouts, meals, etc.  I had it all ready to go and hit the ground running!

And then it was Monday morning.

My 2 year old woke up with a cold and fever.  No daycare.  No work.  Starting my positive energetic week out on a bummer note and behind schedule.  I loved cuddling with him all morning.  Then it was nap time.

Moms, you know the naps I am talking about.  The kind that you get your burst of energy and you go without looking up as you have no idea how long this nap would last.

I was not hopeful as he wasn’t feeling well, but he was out.  For.  Three.  Hours!!!!  I was able to log into work and get some paperwork done and set up my plan of attack for the next day, I paid bills, and then I tackled the guest room closet.  This is the big resolution project for the month and I hadn’t started.  Not only did I start, I finished!  The closet is so clean and organized, that I no longer needed to shut the door.

So my toddler reminded me to go with the flow.  You never know when time and motivation will find you.

Talk to you soon,
