A mother’s life is never easy and when she works outside the home it’s even more complicated.
Women spend a lot of time taking care of their families and like a well in which water is being retrieved and never replenished. Their well becomes dry.
Real life is a little crazy, but we make it worse when we have unrealistic expectations about how perfect everything should be.
In order to live a happier life, you have to let go of unrealistic expectations and work with what you got.
You have to quit feeling guilty and cut yourself some slack, and you have to find a way to make time for yourself.
Avril Lavigne’s song “Complicated” always reminds me of just how much worse we make things.
“Chill out, what you yelling for, lay back, it’s all been done before.”
Women have been juggling life for centuries. Whatever you are going through someone else has experienced and gotten through it.
Stop worrying and learn to chill more. Let the little things slide and learn to accept that you cannot do it all.
Mother Teresa said, “To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it.”
Make sure your lamp is always filled with oil, because when you take care of yourself your family benefits from having a happy mom.
