I am waaaaaay behind on sharing these #projecthappy updates, though I have still been capturing the moments as the days have sped past. We’re entering into the crazy-busy season of multiple birthdays and Christmas; my therapy work ramping up in intensity in advance of the holidays; and all the school commitments to squeeze in too. I love it, I really do. It just means that certain things I’m usually capable of balancing at the same time have to be put down temporarily.
I used to berate myself for not being able to keep up with it all, for not being ‘good enough’ at doing everything all at once. Not any more. I know my edges, know when I can push myself beyond them and when it’s better to take a step back. I know that I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve got and that’s all that matters – that will always be ‘enough’.
So here are my happy moments from a few weeks ago. I survived solo parenting for a week (and, more importantly, so did the girls!). I had a couple of really lovely days with Ella, giving her my undivided attention. And we were happily reunited with the husband after his adventures on the other side of the pond.
