So I haven't written on my blog in a little while, and there is a very simple reason for that..... I am time poor. Like most mums I am trying to walk the tight rope, juggle and keep one eye on the lions. I also feel like I am running a hospitality business with the added role of life coach ie, raising my kids. Then there is my job/ fledgling business/ career. Like most mums I am also pretty good at putting a lot of pressure on myself to make it all happen NOW.
Then a few weeks back I was talking to a lovely friend of mine who happens to run and design for not one but two shops (Dragstar and Shorties for those in the Newtown vicintiy). She refers to her business' as 'Slow Business'. By that she doesn't mean business is slow, in fact the opposite is true. She is simply referring to the fact that she does things in her own time in her own way..... the business version of the 'slow food movement'. I liked what she was saying....... a lot. I have taken it on board and given myself permission to breathe.
Now I know there are bills to pay and deadlines to meet but there are also a lot of things that definitely need to happen...... but not immediately....... just soon. It's a long game, not a short one.
In the meantime, here is a picture of a day out with my kids and some friends last week. It was a 'slow' day. Lovely.
Success! Feel free to
