Sometimes I can be an entrepreneur on fire, dashing out articles, products, advice and consulting with a snap in my fingers and a spring in my step. Ideas flow and work gets done on my mile-long checklist.
But then there are those times that life interferes and it seems all work comes to a halt. My little bubs Joshua got a nasty cough just in time for his 11 month birthday this week. He is normally a happy and healthy guy, but he got bit by the bug that made its way around our family. The poor guy woke up every 20 minutes last night, stuffy and uncomfortable and screaming in hopes it would bring miraculous relief. All I could do was cuddle and feed him, and hope that the get well fairies were busy applying their magic remedies.
As a result of administering 24/7 tender loving care, I feel like a wet sponge. So instead of beating myself up for not accomplishing everything I wanted to this week, I am going to complete one or two critical tasks and call it a day. Then if the universe cooperates and Josh decides to take a nap, I will join him. If you are feeling the same as I do, please be gentle with yourself! There is always tomorrow.
