As an entrepreneur, my days are never alike. The days go by and I marvel at how much my life lacks routine!
On one day, I could wake up to a day full of emailing clients and inputting numbers into appropriate spreadsheets, filing paper receipts (am I the only one?) and creating marketing materials. The next day could be spent prepping and sanitizing the studio and creating little scenes, selecting blankets, backdrops, props and outfits for a Newborn Session. These mornings, I wake up smiling because I know I get to spend time with sweet (sleep-deprived but happy) families who are welcoming a piece of their heart into their world. And on other days, I am staring at my computer screen, editing every image and spending way too much time simultaneously scrolling through TikTok!
As a mother, the mornings I wake up with my children (my husband and I share the school-week wake up duties….. I will blog about it!), are also neither here nor there! I could eat breakfast with my kiddos or not eat until noon. Most mornings, I drink a green tea but some days I don't drink it until it's gone cold and sun is setting. I help pack lunches some days and help make breakfast other days. ALL days, I am the time-keeper!
And some days, like this morning, I start with an unrolled mat and spend 15-minutes to move my body before I plan to tackle my vegetable garden beds and wood stacking.
On these school days, I usually walk my children to the bus stop, but they are older now... So big, so smart, so sassy, so serious. So much for me to love! Well, the sassiness aside.
So, today I walked them. The next time, I may hang back so they can experience more autonomy… and responsibility.
My days, as a mother, a business owner, are so different one to the next and I wouldn’t change either role.
P.S. They had to run to catch their bus!
