Time and time again after talking to many different moms with different needs and different walks of life, we can all agree mothering is HARD. It challenges you in more ways than one. It’s messy, never-ending, but it is the most rewarding job anyone can have.
I’m three kids in, and to be honest, I thought two was hard. Someone asked me the other day how life is with three kids. My response was “Do you want me to be honest?!” Ha! Three kids guys is a whole other ballpark.
Throughout the years, and after many talks with my husband I have learned one thing- I put way too much pressure on myself. Whether it’s the need to always have a clean house, always have the bed made or the dishes clean. The pressure I put on myself alone is breaking me.
I will be the very first one to admit I am not good at asking for help. I’m the I can do it all, say yes to everything, you can count on me, I can bring all the groceries inside by myself and in one trip kind of woman.
Man, just reading that out loud made me tired. That can quickly become so exhausting.
My 2018 resolution is to learn to ask for help. And most importantly not only ask for help but to be proactive in getting help. Because the reality is, I can do anything, but not everything. I’m not supermom, and nor do I really want to be.
