So how is your daily schedule development plan going? Have you taken the time to sit down with your family and establish some plans? Have you already begun to implement? Or are you still avoiding this?
If you're plugging ahead - great!! Just remember to check in and see how it's going and adjust as you need to.
If you're feeling stuck - why? What's getting in the way? Do you have your doubts about whether or not a schedule is helpful? Did you try to get your kids to talk about this but they just wouldn't participate? Did you get as far as posting the schedule but they won't give it a real try? Where are you stuck? And why? What would help you move forward to get beyond this stuck place?
What if you just accepted that this has been hard? Harder than you thought it would be? And what if you could still feel "good enough" despite that?
If you ask the right questions, you'll get the right answers - breathe and listen to your inner wisdom.
Until next time, be well and be content.
