Say what? Let me back up a step or two here….
This morning while drinking my coffee I stumbled over to Pinterest and searched “WAHM” just to see what would appear. (Am I the only one that is using Pinterest in place of Google these days?)
I discovered the SimpleMom website and good lord, if you haven’t been there yet RUN. They have FANTASTIC posts about working from home with children. I even had a good chuckle when I read this one — If you’ve liked me over on Facebook you may have seen that come across your FB Stream this AM. (If you haven’t liked my page on Facebook yet, these are the types of goodies you’re missing out on)!
Then, I came across a post talking about Eating Frogs that made some fantastic points. When I read the quote and the post a little light bulb flickered on…
“Eat a live frog every morning,
and nothing worse will happen
to you the rest of the day.”
I love my job, I love being able to stay home with my boys and work a schedule that works the best for my family. However, working as a VA I do a wide variety of tasks. I’ll be the first to admit there are some tasks my clients send over that I don’t enjoy — that is ANY job though and I’m still grateful to complete them… even if all of the sudden this task makes my ‘job’ as a VA feel like a ‘real job’ again that is totally okay.
Working from home regardless of what you do can be overwhelming at times, especially when we have frogs lying around the office just waiting for us to eat them. (Great visual, huh? My boys would be in heaven it if were true).
I’m going to get back to eating my frogs in the mornings rather than the afternoon. How about yourself? If you struggle with this to be sure to read this post over at SimpleMom —> Start Your Day By Eating a Frog You’ll find some great tips for writing down your to-do’s and then picking out your important tasks and eating your frogs.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need go find my frog and eat it.
