As much as I'd like to think I have it all together as a wife & mother, I just don't. I really really don't. Being a work-at-home Mom really takes a toll on me sometimes. Don't get me wrong, I love that I have the privilege to stay at home with my sweet babies during the day, but with that -- comes a pretty heavy burden. Mainly because some of the only times I get to work during the days are in the evenings or weekends, which takes me away from my family. And I don't like that. I like it when all 4 of us are together, but to be honest, that doesn't happen as much as I'd like it to.
I am so blessed to have a Husband that supports me passion for my business, and is supportive when I need to excuse myself from "family time" to take care of e-mails, editing, or phone consultations.
But I'm getting off topic.
Aside from the pressure I feel throughout the days with keeping my business afloat, is that honestly, raising two tiny tornado's is freaking hard. Not that my boys aren't amazing little creatures, but dealing with the ongoing tantrums, meltdowns, and clingy children is both physically exhausting and mentally draining -- to put it lightly.
So now that I'm done complaining, what I'm here to say is that we all need to refill our tanks, so to speak. What's in that tank, you ask? A whole lotta (or a little) "alone time." I know that for some of us, getting time to ourselves can be next to impossible. But it's something that as Mothers, we NEED. It's incredible what just an hour away from the house, alone, can do for us. It helps us to replenish when our mental state is in a craze after a long day alone with the
I'm just saying, do what you can to sneak away for a little while. Trust me, you deserve it.
Oh, and, be sure to document it. So the rest of us can live simultaneously through you while you're refilling your tank.
