When Your Goals Take A Detour

Amy Lynch Notes From Another Land Back To School 2021

Gratitude Post

Thanks to this pandemic for showing me I’d much rather label school supplies in between attending virtual Startup Canada gov consultations, recording podcast interviews and doing freelance work.

At one point in London, I was about to undertake a UK teacher training program before I was pregnant with our first.

I even visited primary schools, was accepted to an after school reading program and did orientation days. Then I decided to hit pause on that goal.

In future, I may happily teach, mind or read to other children…I just don’t want to exclusively homeschool my own.

These days it’s all about trying to create more windows of time to smash the patriarchy in between trying to be present with my kids (as opposed to being accessible to them all of the time) and remembering small joys (like my love of stationery and storytelling).

Hope you’re finding what works for you, my parenting experience is trial and error all the way.
