Now that summer has finally arrived, there are many outside activities that I want to take part in i.e hiking, road biking, and so many more. But then I remember I’m a mom 😀 . Don’t get my wrong I LOVE being a mom and I look forward to it every single day but boy it makes it a little harder to do stuff and its tiring lol. Dominic is such a busy, busy boy and loves to be outside, which is AWESOME!!
Like most moms I have a job outside of my job at home 😉 and that job can be exhausting, but mostly fun. Most times I find it hard to balance everyday tasks such as house responsibilities, Dominic, exercise, career, family, Church, me time, pets, cooking, flowers, and I think that is it (I can’t remember any more right now). Most days I will have it all planned out on what I am doing each day; such as cleaning, when I will exercise, what I’m making for dinner, and getting Charlie (my dog) on a walk. All that stuff is planned around my work schedule and Tim/Dominic. Most times this all happens before Dominic wakes up in the morning but I great deal of it happens after he goes to bed. That is the thing about balance, you think you have it all planned out and it’s going to work. BUT stuff pops up throughout the day and the plan doesn’t goes has you’ve planned and hoped. Which can be very irritating, but you do your best and get done what needs to be done in that moment and move onto the next.
My biggest struggle is taking “me time”, whenever I do, which isn’t often I feel so bad. I always feel like I should be spending time with my family or Dominic or I should be doing some stuff around the house. So when I do have “me time” I don’t really enjoy it at all due to those feelings. Silly I know. I am hoping to improve on that area, someday. Why is it that one always feels so bad when they take “me time”? Please respond to this question, I would like hear some reasons. Thank You in advance.
