Do you ever have days where if you uttered one word of advice you’d be a fraud?
I’ve had several of those recently.
We were a week back from Germany, and I was absolutely-completely-stick-a-fork-in-me done. I took the weekend slow, and then jumped back into all of my activities because that’s what I do…I am after all super mom. But these Wonder Woman bracelets are feeling a wee bit tarnished.
So today I just want to admit…publicly…that being me is exhausting. It’s wearing and I don’t do a good job of taking care of me. And that leads by extension to not doing a good job with all the roles I juggle.
Can anyone relate?
So before all of you, I confess that I’m going to try – again—to find ways to bring some balance back into my life. That might have to wait until after the ACFW conference, but that’s another story J But I want to find ways to have date time with my husband…every week…even if it’s just sitting on the front porch with a Duplo (German chocolate) talking after the kids are in bed.
I want to find ways to better be present for my kids. There willl always be another crisis that people insist I must deal with that moment, but my kids will leave the house (really, they will!) And I don’t want to sit in a suddenly empty home that never dirties filled with regrets that I wrote just one more email when I could have read one more book to a daughter who is now lugging a backpack around a college campus.
Stay tuned in coming posts to see what I learn on this journey. And if you have suggestions for topics you’d like me to discuss, please leave a comment because being real is even better than being a super mom.
