All in a Days Work ;)

April 18, 2017

This morning I woke up at 6:30am. I did the Oprah & Deepak meditation, I journaled for a bit. It was a peaceful start to my day.

I was really optimistic for the rest of my day. “Yes!” I thought, “I’m going to get so much done today.”

When I have a morning that starts off exactly as I would love my morning to start off – I totally assume that the rest of my day will fall into this beautiful alignment.

But then I remember I have a toddler and an 8 month old Bullmastiff puppy, and I am a stay at home/ work from home mom. Which essentially means the rest of my day will be a giant shit show, with much of it spent as my tiny humans snack bitch.

(Seriously, he is like a bottomless pit. We spend hours every day eating. I don’t understand).

Another chunk of my day is spent chasing the dog, trying to remove from her mouth whatever non food item she has found.  Clothes, toys, mulch, remotes, shoes, kitchen chair legs – it’s all fair game to her.

I do get a 2-3 hour break during nap time – ya know, when I eat, do laundry, check email, write and work to build my very own business empire 🙂

All in a days work, right?!

At the end of the day I’m wiped and I am always wondering wtf I even did?!

But then I remember I did a lot. A lot of things got my attention…even if a lot didn’t get done.

Overwhelm comes from trying to do too much, and from not acknowledging what we do.

As moms, we so often put our attention to everything outside of ourselves. We down play things. We compare ourselves to other moms who we think are doing way more than us.

When what we really need to be doing is having a glass of wine and giving ourselves a freaking high five – acknowledging that we rocked the day.

Cheers!
