"I have spent the last few days with my stepson, Dylan, while my husband, John worked. I have to say that it hasn’t been the easiest because I really wanted to get some work done. I am in the middle of a book and mediation CD project and really wanted to focus.
Well, life happens, right?
Ends up that we needed to have Dylan early this week, so I jumped in and said, “OK, no problem!” This is what I do, drop everything when duty calls……especially family duty.
I had a plan that I felt like would work to still get some work done and spend time with him as well…….it sort-of worked.
Then I was hard on myself.
“Can’t I just be OK with postponing my projects for a few days while I play?”
Then I felt guilty for doing either one…..working or playing!
Have you ever felt this way?
Do we ever win?
Especially as mom-prenuers……keeping up with domestic life, and running a business, while making sure we still eat and bath…..not to mention actually keeping the house clean?!?
No matter what we do…….do we ever feel like we are enough?
Could that be the core of our struggle?
Are we always striving for the perfection award?
Well, that DOES NOT EXIST!
It's true. I checked. It doesn't.
So, it's time to stop the illusion and decide we are fabulous now, no matter what!
I say, do what we can, when we can, drop the guilt and say everyday, in the mirror…… “I’m fu*king fabulous!"
p.s. go ahead and try it now.......go on......it feels awesome!
