Damn this month flew by. It gets very difficult to balance life changing resolutions and the regular duties of restaurant and family life. However I did have a few notable successes this month.
Master the “5 Second Rule”
Inspired by Mel Robbins, I’ve practiced using the 5 second rule to tackle procrastination and tackling tasks that I just don’t feel like doing. Specifically, my running regimen. I completed the 8 week program in about 6 weeks because I tricked my brain into action when there were plenty of times where I wanted to just blow it off.
Indulge in a modest splurge
Certainly spent come of those hard-earned savings on some much needs items. A new laptop, and 17 ft ladder for the house, and a much-needed getaway to NYC.
Stop, Breathe, then react
I have a bad tendency at blowing up at people before they are done delivering whatever bad news that spews out of their mouths.
By taking a second to listensand hear the individual out, I’ve been able to reduce the amount of times I have lost my temper. Most of the times the news isn’t as bad as I first anticipated.
I do occasionally have my moments…sorry #HotHead
Get more involved in sons’ development\
Operation Childless Bed is still underway but I hope to get Liam sleeping in his own bed by the end of June. Then It’s time to tackle potty training. I do have to find more time to get more involved in Lucas’ schooling. Nothing fills me with my guilt that not being as involved as I should be in his life. They both have made great strides this year from all the coaching and therapies they recieve. But I want to make sure I do my part
I’m not leaving Maddex out but let’s face it. The kid is killing it at school. Great grades, awards, you name it. I do want to get to more of his school events next year. 6th grade for him is coming up…I remember going to his kindergarten Graduation, how time flies.
