Week 7, Focused | 2014 Project 52

February 19, 2014

“These days I’m surrounded by diapers, craft supplies, dirty dishes and laundry. Sometimes I want to turn my focus to more luxurious things, but it’s hard to tear it away from these two girls. I’m focused on what’s important xo”

I’m really trying to push myself to pay attention to what’s happening around me, and see the world differently. Being stuck in the house all the time makes it very hard, especially with two small children that demand all my attention. But I make sure to always have my camera nearby (or my phone, cause sometimes that’s just easier), so I can capture little moments.

What it comes down to is that I want to remember these days, as tough as they seem sometimes. I often dream of tropical vacations, spa days and alone time. But someday soon all this will be over and I will miss it. So for now, I will focus on these two girls and the housework and tedious things that come with them, because it’s worth it and because I love them more than any tropical vacation.
