It’s a struggle to keep it all together.
Every day you try harder and harder but somehow you get lost in the shuffle.
Next thing you know….
It’s almost afternoon, you’re still in your pajamas, you haven’t showered yet, you wanted to have the house clean but that’s half finished, and your spouse will be walking through the door any minute now.
That dear old friend guilt comes back and now you are putting those thoughts in your head again:
I should have spent more time with the kids…
I should have the house clean but it’s nowhere near that…
I can’t wait to get a break…I shouldn’t be thinking that way
Resentment settles in because you aren’t getting the help you need around the house.
You start to internalize things because mom is suppose to have it all together all the time.
But it’s a vicious cycle.
You’re doing more…but less is getting done. At the end of the day you don’t know where your day or your time went.
Here’s the deal…
You don’t have to feel like you are being ping ponged through your day jumping from task to task. No need to have that conversation going on in your head running down the list of things you didn’t do and what you still need to do. You can get more done in a day without adding more to your plate and without all the stress.
It’s all a matter of how you go about your day.
