I am in the business of pleasing people. I take a lot fro. helping a lot and I find it difficult to say ‘no’. This goes to the extent where I am rushing around like a blue-arsed fly to make sure I can help out as much as possible. As a result, I am more stressed than ever before. But this isnt slowing me down.
But now my hubby is struggling with his earnings and it looks like I may have to make a few changes to my own work/life situation to balance out financial pressures. Sometimes I feel like losing the oars and just seeing where I’m drifting.
While this all sorts itself out, I like to have a bit of fun and pretend to be someone I am not, for example a ‘cool’ mother.
My daughter wants to learn how to ride a skateboard and was excited to try it out on our living room floor earlier. I thought ‘how hard can it be’ and just jumped on, then did the most spectacular back-flip (to be kind my daughter said I looked like a ballerina) and landed with my arse on the floor and my foot in the door (and pounding).
As a kid I never went near a skateboard so why I thought I would be a natural I have no idea.
I sense a midlife crisis coming on….
