With Mother’s Day in the rearview mirror & several plates overflowing with activities and responsibilities right now, I have been thinking…
…Mommas, we need to give ourselves some more grace. We need to admit that we cannot do it all, at least not without our sanity suffering! I know, we’ve all heard it before. Have you ever really sat and thought about it though? I saw a quote earlier that said, “You can do ANYTHING, but you cannot do EVERYTHING.” Isn’t that what we try to do? We as Mommas try to wear all the hats, all the time, and then beat ourselves up when that leaves us feeling frazzled.
We stress and worry all because we are trying to do everything. Instead we should be soaking up the accomplishments each day brings, the tasks actually checked off your to-do list and not just moved to tomorrow’s list. I encourage you to really look for time wasters in your life, look for things you can skip to make life a little less chaotic. When we say no to some things it leaves us the ability to say yes to better things. Things that make us happy and bring us joy, things that our children will be able to look back and remember their Momma being happy about, not stressed about. It’s going to change season to season and something that is too much to take on right now, might be a perfect fit down the road.
