Day 4 – The Challenge
Today’s challenge was about dealing with interruptions, which is actually kind of ironic. I totally bombed the first couple of days of this challenge, because I didn’t have a lot of opportunity to work on the challenge, but I have an unlimited number of opportunities to be interrupted throughout my day, what with two little ones. I tried to remember to be patient when my son was fussy, when my daughter was throwing fits, and whenever either of them needed something when I was in the middle of working on something. I tried to focus on the fact that I was needed and reminded myself that they won’t always need me, so I should enjoy this time with them now.
I feel like I did pretty well, though it helped if I took some deep breaths when I started to become frustrated. It has been difficult for me to accept the fact that I will get less done in a day than I did before I had kids, but that is something I work on every day!
