Click below to hear about living and working in your current season:

As we are getting into the second half of the school year, are you noticing a difference in your energy and priorities compared to the beginning of the school year?

Maybe there’s something new going on in your life or you’re entering a different phase with parents or your children. As we move from season to season, it is so important to recognize where we’re at and respect how living in that season may look different than just a few months before.  

You know I love The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi and have shared some great takeaways from the book in previous episodes. One thing she really focuses on is living in your current season and giving it all your attention without rushing through.

This really hit home last year as me and my family went through new seasons every few months as we added another baby to the family. This idea is something that really helped me and I knew I needed to share it with you!

Whether you are moving, pregnant or coming back from maternity leave, having a spouse start a new job, or are going through other changes within your family, taking a look at your current season will help you determine reasonable expectations for living in this season.

In this episode, we are looking at what to consider in your current season, how to live with respect to nature’s seasons, and why it’s so important to match your expectations with your current season.

Topics Discussed in This Episode About Living and Working in Your Current Season:

  • How I respected the many seasons me and my family went through last year
  • How to look at your current season by considering your capacity, limitations, and priorities in this season
  • Why you should live with respect to nature’s seasons and how to look at what each season has to offer and embrace it
  • The importance of matching your expectations with your current season and examples of this for both home and school life
  • My challenge to help you live fully in the current season you are in
