My Confession, Need for Balance & Simple Ramblings

I will tell you first and foremost that this post is not about furniture, it’s more personal than that.  I won’t be mad if you decide to exit the page now but if you’d like to stick around I think you may be able to relate.   This past weekend was Mothers Day and I hope all the moms, grandmothers, step mothers, acting moms and any type of person who puts another person ahead of themselves had a chance to relax, be appreciated for all that you do and spend it with loved ones.

I spent Mother’s Day with my hubby and little ones and we had a great day.  I am thankful for them every single day, but I confess that I also feel “mommy guilt” nearly every day.  I know that these two wonderful little people love me to death no matter what I do, and I probably beat myself up more than I should. I never feel like I can give them enough.  As a woman, like many of us I wear many hats – I help (along with hubby) to maintain the home, I am mom, I run this business, keep up this blog and I have a full time job.  I know I never mention the other job because I often feel that it is irrelevant to my blog and business but it is part of my life and a contributing factor to my lack of sleep. Would you believe that I get home at 3 am each night?  I never feel like I am able to give 100% to the kids or hubby or my business or my job or MYSELF. I often feel like a hot mess, unorganized, scattered and distracted. I keep a calendar to write things down and if I don’t write it down it nearly doesn’t exist in my world.

With these little factors I think I, as well as all of us, need to make sure to take the time to take care of ourselves and keep our priorities in line because so quickly we can drown in the overwhelming daily life.  I’d like to share with you below the best Mother’s Day gift that I received this past weekend.

I’d love it if you scrolled down to the bottom and shared in the comments how you spent your Mother’s Day or even your own tips for maintaining balance while wearing many hats.
