Finding balance in life is one of those topics that I think most people struggle with. We all have so many areas of our lives that we desperately want to juggle perfectly – family life, a job, home, friends…the list goes on. And what I’ve realized is that many of us put a ton of pressure on ourselves to achieve this “perfect” balance. When we can’t keep up, the guilt weighs heavy on us. I know personally speaking, I have struggled with this a lot.
One of the most important life lessons I’ve learned thus far is that lasting change happens when you alter your DAILY routine in some capacity. Your daily routine speaks volumes about your overall lifestyle – it tells a story about what is important to you, what you choose to make time for, and how you decide to live your life.
“Mom, you can cook a mean roast beef dinner, and you’re a pretty good listener. But, your stomach is big and you could lose a few pounds in your butt too. Oh, and your jokes aren’t that funny either, and everyone at work probably thinks you’re not very smart. And I think I’ll tell you this every single day, just to remind you in case you forget”.
A few questions for you momma’s…how many of you feel burnt out, chronically exhausted, and overwhelmed on the daily? How many of you feel like you “have it all” – beautiful, healthy children, a safe and cozy home, perhaps a good job…but you dedicate all of your time to keeping everyone else happy and your needs and interests are left unfilled?
I find it heartbreaking that so many of us walk around feeling a sense of unhappiness every single day, and yet…all we want as humans is to feel truly happy. We search and search for this “happiness” as if it’s something tangible we can find…but in reality, the only way to find it is to dig deep within ourselves. So, today…I’m starting that conversation and helping you dig a little bit deeper.
