Balancing school work and home responsibilities is no easy feat. I find myself very stressed out at times, because of this I try to include things that make me feel at peace in my daily routine. I like to take my daughter to the park when ever the weather is nice, I enjoy it just as much as my daughter does. Taking a break from thinking about what assignments need to be done or what I am going to make for dinner is just what I need. I like to clear my mind and just enjoy the moment. When I was a little girl my fondest memories with my father were in the park. It is nice to think that I am starting my own traditions with my family, that I hope she will always appreciate and remember.
I think it is important to spend some time alone, even for a little while. If you can’t stand to be in your own company how can anyone else want to be near you. I try to the salon every Sunday morning alone, I like this day because I am usually the first person in and the first person out. What girl doesn’t like being pampered? Getting my hair done on Sundays helps me prepare for the week ahead. Since the process is so long, I get plenty of time to read or listen to music. I try to avoid doing school work or think about things that need to be done later. These special Sundays are the most peaceful days of my week.
