Changes + Challenges.
Change is never easy. Not for me anyway. Bean going to school is a big change. A welcome change but a huge change just the same.
And with this change comes challenges. Big challenges. Our routine, which we have had for five years + has worked for five years, is changing. And we are all challenged by this
My kids are kind of free range in the morning, they get up, they colour, play draw, they eat breakfast when they want, get dressed when their ready + we go out when it suits us (mostly!)
Now we are time sensitive, I am constantly nagging everyone to eat up, put their shoes on + clean their teeth.
I don't like nagging….
I also don't like loosing the relaxed and easy mornings where we can have french toast if we want to, where we can stay in our jimjams until late, where we can lay on the floor colouring if we want.
Changes and Challenges.
And as much as I want to rebel against these changes, I can't. We have to adjust + work through the challenges that we will face.
Are you facing challenges or changes in your life? Art journalling (like above) is now on of the main ways I deal. How do you cope with change + work through your challenges.
