Trying to write daily…

Last night I read the post Why you should write daily by Leo Babauta. My maternity leave is soon coming to an end and when I look back at what I wanted to achieve when I started it last December and where I am now, I feel like I didn’t do much (apart from giving birth to a lovely little boy of course! ). I had so many goals that I wanted to attain and I secretly wanted to start my own online language business to become freelance and independent. Although I do love teaching in a “real” classroom and I did miss the school buzz, I wanted to start something on my own. I under – estimated what “looking after three boys ” really meant and to be honest a part of me also wanted to rest and enjoy the time with my family. I definitely think woman nowadays have a hard dilemma trying to find a balance between work and family. The point is that I didn’t do what I had plan to do and I now feel frustrated and a bit depressed.

Going back to Leo Babauta‘s post, his point is that writing everyday “helps you reflect on your life and changes you’re making and it also clarifies your thinking.” That is why I decided to have a go today to help me “de-stress” and feel less frustrated about my current situation. As a matter of fact, I did achieve some little things related to work. I had plan to finish writing the whole Spanish curriculum at my school but of course I didn’t and I am nowhere near it. But … I did add some bits and bobs, especially to grade 8. So that is at least something.

I will try to to commit to daily writing even if I only end up writing two sentences because I do feel better now and I do feel that I have at least done something productive on my blog! When I first started writing a blog a few years ago, I wanted it to be focused on teaching and languages but I then added some recipes and then other things that had nothing to do with teaching. I now want my blog to be a mix of everything, a blend of reflections, feelings and most importantly ideas, new ideas…
