I used to wish I had more time with my husband and kids. Now, I’m just making more time.
I used to wish I could just finish this one thing before shutting down for the day. Now, I (sometimes) just shut down and make notes for the morning. (Very early morning, to be honest, but still, worth it.)
I used to wish I had time to make my kid a cake instead of buying one. Today, I did.
I used to wish.
Now, I do.
Note: Clearly this is more poetic than 100% true. I’m trying, I swear! It’s a process. If you ask my kids if I’m more ‘present’ lately, they’ll say yes. Well, at least I hope they will.
