I am really really happy to start a new week. Last week I started the week with big goals and ended the week feeling pretty defeated — like I had over promised and under delivered. Life, especially motherhood, is a moving target. Summer is a full on walker these days and I can barely keep up with her (I swear she went from crawling to full on RUNNING over night!) Everyone warned me that once they walk it’s a whole new ballgame, and boy they weren’t joking. I barely got dressed in grown up clothes last week, much less delivered on all my work and family commitments, or blogged for that matter. I was feeling pretty down on Friday — starting to feel like parts of me were slipping away. Parts of me that I pride myself in — my organization, my ability to multi-task, my ability to keep my cool. I hadn’t pulled myself together (which alone usually makes me feel kinda crumby), I didn’t finish projects, I didn’t have any patience, the house was a wreck, I basically felt like a huge failure — until a few amazing mama friends reminded me — every day is a new day. No one looks perfect everyday, no one crosses off every to do on their list every single day, no one is the best mom every single day. And they’re right. So today I start the week with a fresh clear mind. I am ready to get up, dress up, and show up. I am ready to start the week, ready to chug all the coffee, ready to kick ass as a mom, wife, friend, and most importantly ready to cut myself some slack if I fall short.
Wishing you all a week filled with love, patience, and productivity! xoxo
