For the first time in two years in able to sit outside and soak up some sun while my baby girl is napping. It has been the hardest thing as a new mom to find balance. You have to find balance between work and home, in your marriage, and with yourself. My goal this past week has been to find balance between being a mom and caring for myself. I’ve been trying to relax more and enjoy the summer days. I stress out about a lot of things and this usually leads to me avoiding doing anything and just staying on my couch, but not anymore!
If you have to just get up and do one thing per day then that’s fine. We live in a society where we as mom’s are expected to do everything so perfectly and not go to sleep until it’s all done. I mean I’ve literally avoided posting pictures on social media because my house wasn’t perfect in the background. That’s not the life I want to live anymore though. I want to be able to take 30 minutes for myself while my daughter naps and get a little tan and if the dishes don’t get done today than it’s not the end of the world.
Try to do one thing today that is for yourself. Try to find just a little balance in this crazy world.
