Today was a busy day. I had back to back clients, hungry, tired kiddos, and my mind was in a million different places trying to check off everything I have on my to-do list. .
This is motherhood. Constantly trying to “do it all” and “get it all done”. To find balance they say. I try, I do. But it seems that once I feel like I have a “balance”, it all just goes back to chaos.
Motherhood is chaotic. You’re not doing it wrong. We aren’t doing it wrong. It’s just that hard! ❤️
Why am I sharing this, well my good friend Brittney sent me these photos, that I had no idea she took this morning, and she sent over the sweetest message that meant more than she knows. It was a perspective I don’t see often and much needed and I’m so grateful. .
These photos bring a huge smile to my face and also some tears because in that moment all I was thinking about was what I had to do next and that my biceps may rip off. Little did I truly enjoy and submit to this precious moment on our walk to get coffee a muffin. .
I want these photos to serve as a reminder for not just me, but to all you Mom’s out there trying to juggle it all and find balance, constantly consumed in the chaos, to remember to slow down. Slow down and try to savor these precious moments. I know looking at these photos, that one day I am going to wish my kids would want me to hold them and feel the feeling of my biceps about to rip off. Haha. .
So here’s to remembering to breathe. To slow down. To embrace the chaos. . And to doing our best to remember to savor the precious moments ❤️#sweatyasamother
