First things first.
Are you happy in this moment? In this mindset of GO, GO, GO!?
I personally hate it. I feel overwhelmed. I feel like a failure and ultimately Jack feels left out and irritable.
I need to change my thinking. I need to stop. Sit down. Cuddle the baby. And remember that I only get one chance at this. Jack will only be this young once. I will not regret holding off on the tasks. I will regret missing these moments with him.
You are a good Mom when your tasks are done. You are good Mom when they aren’t. It’s not about what we accomplish. It’s about connecting with others, with nature, with the universe, with our loved ones.
You can’t do it all. But you can have it all. All the love that life has to offer. Open yourself to this love. And now pass it on to your baby.
