Is this something people do?
I believe it is. But I’m not sure what to do or how to do it..
I mean I have my thoughts and assumptions.
Today we had a very long (accidentally got lost lol) walk and talk. Things has been off for a while and we both felt disconnected. We’ve done this before and it truly helps. We get some time just for us. Go for a walk and talk through things we haven’t felt works or something we want to change or whatever issues we’re facing at the moment.
This time my main thing was – I want us to live more intentionally. What that is for me is to be more organised. If we’re organised we’d have more time for fun stuff. And I don’t mean sex or intimacy (although that’d be nice too of course). I mean family outings, having fun together as a family.
So how can we do this? My first suggestion is that we take an evening a week, when kids are in bed, to plan the week ahead. To check in where we need to fill gaps, need extra support or whatever. We will be trying this, and I’m very hopeful it’ll help us in the day to day struggles of raising two young boys.
Currently we’re constantly winging it which leaves a lot of room for misunderstandings, stress, last minute sorting of stuff for school/nursery or other things. and we’re not doing it very well. Hence the need for change.
I have this idea that if we get more organised we’ll be happier. Might be a dream. But we won’t know unless we try, right?
I think with two young kids we need to try whatever we can in order to be as good as we can for them. And this is a way to do that. I think.
Do you live intentionally? How do you do it? What is the main thing for you that makes the daily struggles easier to get through?
Any tips or ideas much appreciated 🤩
Enjoy your day and hopefully you’ll get to sleep well, even if it’s only five minutes at a time. X
