Airing it out.

Doubt, uncertainty, restlessness. It plagues us all at times. I find that it hits me when my 'to-do' list is cleared and things are in order. I thrive better on a small amount of stress. Such trivial, meaningless worries considering the devastation our world had experienced lately. But worries all the same. I find writing them down helps put them in perspective and clear the air in my head (as opposed to the brain that should be in it's place!)

...Is Stella getting everything she needs to be happy and healthy? Enough play? Enough good nutrition? Enough stimulation? Is she learning enough? Should she be in care? Do I spoil her too much? Let her get her own way too much? Do I spend enough quality time with her?

Should I be studying? Should I be working more? Should I be doing less housework? Should I be resting more? Resting less?

I should eat better, I should exercise more, I should read more, I should Facebook less.

Should I be spending more time with my friends? Am I a good friend? Should I be socialising more? Socialising less and mothering more?...

What kind of trivial worries creep into your day when you have too much time to think? Are they anything like this?

  1. Argh, i always think
    'Does she have enough tummy time?'
    'Does she socialise with other babies enough?'
