Homeschooling amidst covid-19 resumes today and everyone in the house is struggling.
Kids (and adults alike!) are not designed to be locked in their homes under house arrest, and after finally coming out of one lockdown and gradually watching the kids and myself heal and see the light, this second lockdown has become a little too much to bear…and I always know when I am really struggling, because I stop writing in my diary lest my emotions flood forth like a dam that can not be shut.
In saying that, one of the things we talk about in The Prosperity Project-Journey of 1,000 Steps is to focus on what we can control– and in this instance it’s our reaction to how we respond to what’s going on.
During this lockdown, the beaches have been allowed to stay open (there were talks originally of closing again, but it’s winter in Melbourne so very few people go so they have stayed open), so in line with my vision for wearemorningtonpeninsula.com I’ve been out and about exploring, taking photos and allowing grattitude for this stunning place I call home, to fill my soul and allow the sunshine in.
In addition to this, the kids have had some positivity too.
My son’s artwork is flourishing:
and my daughter who usually struggles with 1-1 time because it’s hard to do with her younger brother on hand 24/7 now means we are hanging out more and more together…today we have a mummy/daughter date to watch maleficent, and so these are all moments in time I am grateful for.
I know right now things are tough for many adults and especially kids and teens, but if there is something you are grateful for which you would like to share, please feel free to leave a comment below.
Take care and if you need to buddy up with someone to get you through this difficult time, please let me know, you can always join in with myself, Andrea and Amanda, we would love to meet you and support you on your journey.
