068: Is it OK to Wish it Away?

with Lisa York

The days are long but the years are short

[Gretchen Rubin]

A few weeks after my first child was born, my sister-in-law told me to savour these newborn moments because they won’t last forever

I distinctly remember looking down at my crying baby and through bloodshot eyes, thinking, GOOD!

I wanted this phase to be over.

But she was right. In the blink of an eye, that screaming baby is now almost half way through his childhood. Yikes.

I quickly came to realise that motherhood will inevitably be full of hills and valleys. I didn’t want to wish the whole flippin’ lot away so instead, I figured out a way to combat it.

Today on High Five Friday, Lisa York talks about how to change your thinking so you don’t end up wishing their entire childhood away.
