The new year is upon us and it’s time for a fresh start.
I’ve enjoyed looking back at my past new year’s posts and remembering the accomplishments of those years.
But this year, to be honest, I didn’t accomplish as much in my business as I had hoped. My two girls are young and although there is always MUCH to do clinically (multiple sessions to plan for and facilitate) and business-wise (invoicing, client calls, marketing, etc.) I still spend a significant amount of time with my girls each day.
It’s the beauty and challenge of being a business owner and a mom.
This year, I am giving myself permission to be okay with accomplishing more as a mom than as a business owner.
I attended every class party.
I attended every Over The Rainbow Reading Ceremony for my daughter.
I did Lunch Bunch (ate lunch & read books!) with my daughter and her friends.
I read How the Grinch Stole Christmas to a class of wide-eyed Kindergarteners and helped them make Christmas ornaments.
I packed lunches each and every afternoon I was home.
I helped with homework each and every day I was home.
It’s a new year and I have no goals for my business. I chose a guidance word for the year, and that will help keep me on track as I make what progress I can in my business while continuing to be present and engaged with my own children.
Can you relate? Was last year or this upcoming year a time when you need to be gentle with yourself too? Leave a comment below and let me know.
