TAKING TIME
(Infinite Series)

I am not a fan of the hustle movement. After a day of cramming in too much, and working at a frantic pace, I feel worn out and like I still didn't get enough done.

I've learned to keep my goals simple, and to enjoy what matters.  I don't want my worth to be based on how many things I ticked off my to do list.  I don't want to feel like I have to prove I did enough stuff to justify being home.

In any area that is not paid, it can be a tough mental battle, because you have nothing to show for the work you are putting in. There are no $bonuses for raising kids, there may not be much market for your creativity as you're starting out. The rewards are loooong term, but our society is much richer for strong families and authentic creativity. 

So keep on keeping on, and enjoy taking time!
