I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
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.
