Day 283 | JUNE 20, 2022
Good evening, Friends, today is day 283 of our new and amazing life.
Today I woke up to a funny site, Julien woke up early today, 5:50am and vovó went to get him dressed, he came to my bedside around 6:20a and woke me up, and the moment I open my eyes, he threw his little bunny and it hit me right on my head, it was just too funny, a great way to wake up 🙂
As usual I made my way downstairs, got breakfast ready for the boys, and Charlie.
Vovó was a little under the weather today, so she had a slow start, and I didn’t get to my office until 10:30am, not a good move for a busy Monday morning, but the only choice I had.
I spent most of my morning dealing with insurance, attorney and editor, it was a busy day, with mostly things to be worried about.
Today was a day that I went over the last few chapters with my book editor, we are getting near the final stretch towards the final chapter, and boy I am telling you, it will be amazing, by now you have a good idea what the book will be, based in the first Chapter, I really hope it sparked your interest.
At 5pm, I had to stop work and made my way up to take over the care for the boys.
We played for a little while and soon it was time to prepare dinner. London enjoyed my famous Brazilian hot dog, and Julien had a PB&J with a side of fruits, they both loved their dinners!
Charlie and I had the Brazilian hot dogs, and it was delicious, if you are curious, google Brazilian hot dogs 😉
After dinner, it was time to put the boys to bed.
Julien went first, bath then bed and London also had a bath and then bed.
As I write today’s journal, I am tired, and I also feel overwhelmed.
I have a lot of things that require my time and attention, the difficulty is there is not enough time in a day for all that I need to do.
When I feel overwhelmed, it is hard to even think, no matter how much I try, it is almost as if my mind freezes.
It is amazing how my mind has the incredible ability to go fast into dark places.
When I am not constantly aware of my thoughts, I had the most incredible weekend and Father’s Day celebration, and just because I was unable to work as much as I needed, because my time was dedicated to be with the kids for a long period today, my mind started to suggest that I am overwhelmed and I can’t do it all.
Well, here is the plan, when things get hard and I don’t want to do something, that is when I push harder and keep on pushing, when my mind wants to give up trying, I intentionally push in the opposite direction.
This entry is for myself, this is the advice I am telling myself.
On another note, now it is a great time to purchase your book, either the Kindle or Paper Copy.
The pre-sale price will be increasing a little very soon, I just want to give you heads up 🙂
I am very grateful for your support and prayers.
We do need your prayers, we need strength, it is not an easy Journey, but we are grateful for his help so far.
Have a good night and thank you!
Just a cute moment between London and Julien playing outside today.
