The School Holidays Conundrum

With a light hearted soul I have a very very important question for you all, who here with kids (or without - which would be even more hilarious and serious teehee) stops all personal or business flow during the school holidays, my girl is 11 and so fairly independent in fact left to her own devices she would literally be on a device - tik tok - roblox - you tube - netflix. With that in mind of course I cant leave her to her own devices and I want to be her parent and hang with her and create experiences but holy heck every single school holidays I set realistic intentions of ticking off certain business tasks, I make them doable and time easy, they balance with our holiday plans and I would even feel extremely very great once they are done. So why oh why oh why do I not get the time or the drive or the inkling to go there once the holidays have started, a 2 week full pause is a lot when you are building up a business and have some awesome momentum going. Heres an example yesterday (already nearly a week she's been back at school) I find out my pre scheduled IG posts haven't flowed through to facebook - ALL HOLIDAYS - checking fb is not hard nor rocket science but for some weird reason I didn't even go there.

Look here's some actual memory creation on the slopes of Cadrona, Sth Island, NZ. And she's loving it and so was I with the exception of being a very incapable skier. Pizza - Chips - PIZZAAA!

I'm a pretty wise soul and can usually see the patterns in things and some reasoning potential from that but this! haha Yeah Na, not a lot coming to mind right now. Crickey it doesn't seem to end with only business related matters, I literally stop shaving my legs (more than usual winter stoppages), somedays brushing hair is so overrated and if my poor aging nearly 50 year old skin gets a moisturise well its doing great that day, oh and believe me I know it needs it. I started an incredible nutrition routine 2 mths ago and do you think I could remember to take that day and night after the first 2 days of hols. Is this only me, am I missing some important data download that would have sprung me into action or forgot to eat the fruits of inspiration the week prior.

Disclaimer: These are not images of me, my hair is much much messier, my legs much much hairier, and even though I am at plucking stage I am not at shaving stage no matter how grim it gets in the school holidays, so obviously that a pic of a bloke.

Well I'm just gonna leave it there, as you can read this is a blog of sharing this month, not a lot of inspiration, no wisdom that I have picked up on thus far but hopefully in sharing I can either normalise the school holiday experience for you or you can all marvel as to how the phenomena actually exists and how I may be entrapped within it. On a positive note I can confess that although during my work hours this week I started with absorption and learning due to being incapable of much more (must be a post school holidays phenomena). I have in fact returned to some form of productivity and my energy is sparkling, my client sessions rocking, my crystals are buzzing and I am tuned back in to deliver what Jenny Gower is really capable of. So bring it on and I promise, pinky promise to myself that next school holidays I will in fact be awesome, either that or we only have 9 more weeks of awesomeness left before the next 2 week Pause!
