My family is my everything and being a wife and mother brings me so much joy, but it can also be challenging to try and do it all. I love being home with my family but I also really adore my work, and for any and every working mother you know how hard it can be to balance the scales.
We as woman are so hard ourselves. We are constantly trying to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, and/or the perfect provider. We either feel as though we are doing a great job at work, but missed out on time with our family, OR took the day to entertain our family, but then maybe didn’t complete our work. All the while still trying to remember the amazing husbands in our life and making them feel loved and then putting ourselves last on the list. Probably 9 times out of 10 not ever giving ourselves the attention we need to care for ourselves.
Why do we put ourselves last? Aren’t we important in the big picture of our families and life? We put everyone before us and usually that means you never get time to work on our own personal goals, take a day to pamper you or just let loose and have fun. But this is so important! We need to enjoy our lives in order to bring joy into our families and work place. I’m a firm believer in taking care of those around myself but also caring for myself. Making sure I get moments to do the things I love and continuing to work on my own personal growth. I’m not just helping my loved ones grow as people, but I’m improving and learning. This way I am inspired and in turn inspiring those around me. And now with taking time for ourselves we have to remind ourselves all we can do is do our best and enjoy it while we have it. Taking time for yourself isn’t going to feel easy right away and we are always going to wish for more time to do it all, but really what’s important is remembering we are doing a great job and you are just as important in the family as you put everyone else. Take time to learn and grow who you are and spoil yourself sometimes. In order to bring joy you must feel joy. We are woman and we are the future. Treat yourself like a queen that you are.
