I’m done. I’m done with the chaos. Done with the stress of it all. I hate that I’m tied to my phone. I feel like I am constantly checking social media as a way to connect with the outside world. Juggling my businesses, which I primarily use social media for is becoming a distraction from why I got into Direct Sales to begin with. To be there for my kids. I joined my two companies because I believed in the business models, and I can see the vision of where both are going.
But, for me, I need to take a break from social media. I need to not be tied to my phone so much. I have so many projects around my house I need to complete. We all know I want to move back to Idaho, and need to get my tail in gear. Focusing on my kids this Summer is my priority. Yes, I will still be doing my businesses, but I’m going to be focusing more on my customers, and building real relationships.
Joey has struggled all year at school. He has had some really great days, but there have been some pretty bad days too. For Joey, he doesn’t pick up on social cues. He blurts out words to people without thinking about what he is saying. He’s six first and foremost, but he is also a 6 year old that struggles socially. To Joey, everything is black and white and rules are meant to be followed. When a child in his class isn’t following the rules he gets anxious and upset. When another child picks on him and he can’t find the right words to tell the child to leave him alone, he resorts to spitting and hitting or saying hurtful things. He does this when things don’t go his way too. He wants things to be perfect. If he runs out of time to complete an assignment, it results in him spitting or hitting his teachers.
We work with him and tell him these are unexpected behaviors. His outside therapists that see him at school work with coping strategies so he doesn’t retaliate in these inappropriate ways. Joey see’s a private Occupational Therapist that works with him on appropriate play and ways to feel better when he is out of sorts. His teachers and Guidance Counselor have also been amazing at working with Joey.
I’m not making excuses for Joey. I hate that he does this. I know he is a sweet kid who loves to learn. But for him, he learns differently. So, this Summer I want to spend time with him and his sister. I want to work with them and spend time with them this Summer. Next Summer, who knows where we will be or what I will be doing. I need to be away from my phone so much. I need to limit my time that I look at my phone and I need to be in the present.
I am wanting to work on my blog too. I want to share recipes I’ve tried that my family (okay so my husband) approves of. I want to document how we get two picky eaters to eat. Wish me luck!! Share some of my favorite products and feature women who are really rocking it at life but don’t necessarily think they are. If you know of a woman you want me to feature – please let me know, I’d LOVE to give them a shout out!!
If you need to reach me, feel free to text or email me and I will get back to you when I can.
This is me, signing off. Enjoy your Summers and I will see ya in the Fall when the kids are back in school!!
