Inconsistent or just flexible?

Normally I would say that my writing of late has been hit or miss, some days are awesome, others I get nothing done at all, but I’m beginning to think that I should re-frame that in a more positive light.

I did after all say that I was going to take it easy this month, and part of being easier on myself is allowing for change. There is an ebb and flow to life with two small children, and I don’t usually take that into consideration.

Of late, I don’t feel guilty or upset about the fact that I’m not making as much progress as I might like to, which suggests I am moving towards being more flexible and less of a slave driver to myself. Life is a lot nicer when you’re not judging your own worth on the number of things you are getting done.

Anyways…. back to playing cards with Ivy before she goes and wakes the baby up!

  1. progress is clearly an ebb and flow sort of thing. I’ve wanted to write for years, but spent the last 20 or so taking care of kids. now it’s coming like a flood, but even that’s here and there, when I KNOW I must write.

    like now, with no kids around and it’s going great guns. in a few days I’ll be away, and that’s fine too.

    it comes when it comes, as all things in life do… 🙂

    1. I think I’ve always known that, but struggled against the ebbs and flows which led to frustration on my part – but I guess I’m actually learning some patience now, which makes it all easier.

  2. So true… the ebbs and flows are natural, but it’s hard not to judge yourself for it. I know I do. At the same time, once you start cooperating with that rhythm, the flows may really, really take you places and the ebbs may be more productive then you realize… and even if they’re not, that card game is worth it!
