I struggle with prioritization when it comes to parenting. Like really bad.
I look around the house and always see 7,000 things that need to be done.
I tell myself that dinner prep can’t wait. Sweeping the floors can’t wait.
And then I stop the mental to-do list spiral and ask myself. “do these things have to get done this very minute?”.
And the answer is always no. Really, seriously, truly no.
I can pivot and make a dinner that requires little-to-no prep. The floors can wait another day.
I have to give myself permission to reschedule that task for another day and to prioritize experiences.
And it is always worth it when I do.
As July comes to a close, and one month of summer remains, my motto for the month ahead will be – no, but really, that can wait for another day.
