Many times over the last two years (the amount of time I consider myself a single parent), I’ve been asked, “How do you do it?” I stay busy. Wait, what???? People generally want to know how I am so busy and make it work. I stay busy to stay sane. If I spend one moment in my own mind, my own thoughts, reminiscing about good times, or hoping for a better situation, I will lose it. I’ll break down. I’ll fall apart. I’ll cry.
I stay busy so I can stay focused. Stay driven. Stay determined. I stay busy to redirect my thoughts on positive messages. I stay busy to learn and grow. I stay busy so I can restore my soul. How do you restore yours?
