Balance

I really struggled trying to come up with my word this month but really it was right in front of me. It is something that I have struggled with for some time. Becoming a mom of two. Opening an Etsy store. Taking care of the house. Being a wife.

So this month is all about balance.

I will be the first to admit that I'm not so good at that. I have about a hundred things on my plate and when they are all in the air at the same time, I tend to drop everything which makes me feel like I'm failing at everything. Failing is probably extreme but I'm sure other moms out there can relate. It always seems like something gets dropped and in a world where we feel like we should handle everything all the time, it's hard to not feel like we have failed.

So my goal for this month is to work on finding balance. I want to work on spending more time taking care of myself, working on my shop and just being a mom. I want to find the balance in doing all those things so I don't feel like all I am is a mom or feel like I'm neglecting my kids.

I think we can all understand needing more balance. Sometimes things just feel off and it's a struggle to get back again. So this month is devoted to finding that balance between all those things and also learning to forgive myself for those times that something gets dropped.
