One of my pet peeves is people telling me I am not busy because I don’t kids! Ahh!!!!!
I am not sure how mothers got the exclusive contract on the word busy? Someone, please tell me how their time is more important than mine?
We are all busy doing what is important in our life. That doesn’t mean that the way I spend time is any less valuable than a mother’s time. We are simply spending our time in different ways. And yes, I do have more time for me, my passions and relaxing but that is the choice I made in life. And being the OCD type that I am, I actually schedule downtime in my busy calender. (I know, it’s sad)
So, to put the rumors to rest about how I spend my time as a Childfree woman, this is a typical weekday for me. I am not lazing around watching TV all day or going shopping!
A typical week day:
4.45am Alarm goes off
5am Answer a few emails
5.20am travel to F45 training to get my exercise fix for the day
5.45am F45 class
7pm Shower & get beautified
7.30-8am Breakfast and mindfulness for the day ahead
8am emails and prep
8am-12pm work at desk/meetings
12pm Lunch, reading and possible errands
1.00pm Back at desk and back to work
3.45pm Learning break – self education
5pm emails and admin
7-8.30pm TV break
9pm Bed & start all over again
As a mum your day is going to be different. But don’t think that your time is more important than mine and never tell me that “you’ve got heaps of time as you’re not a mother”. That is totally insulting and rude!
Remember you had the choice to become a mother therefore how you spend your time with change. So be respectful and mindful that I made a different choice to you!
