One day, I decided I was going to make things change. I remember laying in bed feeling so sad. So exhausted and deflated. I remember so vividly thinking, “tomorrow I will do one thing, one single thing, to begin making things better.”
And I did.
That car was loaded up by 8:30 the next morning with the kids – snowsuits and all. Nothing was stopping me this time. Out to the library we all went where I gathered every single ‘Gentle Parenting’, ‘Attachment Parenting’ and ‘Waldorf Parenting’ book I could.
I devoured those books. And the next batch too.
I grew empowered. Empowered to change my current situation.
And I did.
The two key things that changed everything?
Quiet Time and Connecting Time.
Now I have shared with you a lot about quiet time in my other eBooks. All about how to make it run smooth and easy. But for quiet time to work – for it to be fully embraced, we also need Connecting Time.
I started implementing these things, giving our days a peaceful rhythm and everything changed.
I soldiered on, digging right in, clinging to this nurturing rhythm, clinging to quiet time and connecting time and the wholesome, lovely days I dreamed of emerged.
I was empowered and transformed my days into the days I dreamt about.
Now, it is my turn to empower you!
