Catching up… it isn’t fun…

Hi guys,

Today I would like to write a short post. I am on my journey in catching up with my to-do list. Although every day fewer tasks are being moved forward than the day before, the number is still terrifying. But I know that getting on top of everything is going to be a long journey and slowly but surely I am getting there.

I had some moments of helplessness today, though. It was hard to push through them, but I did. I also have to agree, that doing any work with a toddler running around isn’t the easiest thing. However, I keep getting him involved in more and more chores. At the moment, it slows me down, but I hope that in the long run, he will grow into an independent young man. Having his diagnosis made me crazy about independence. I know that he has his struggles and apart from ‘normal’ things, he’ll have to learn how to cope with them. But he is a very bright boy and watching him learn new things brings me a lot of joy. Even though he slows me down, he motivates me to push and not give up. And this is the real motivation. The one person, who makes me want to get up out of bed no matter how low I feel (‘wants’ isn’t the right word, he forces me to leave my bed sometimes) and I am very grateful for that. It is hard to stay in a dark place when there is this little sunshine jumping and running around.

And that’s it for today’s post. Just a quick check-in. I hope you enjoyed reading it anyway. I wish you a very important day and I’ll see you in my next post.
