I’m beginning to wonder if there is such thing as organized motherhood. Becoming a parent has not been easy for me, I struggle daily with balance. Balance between putting my all into my new job, building my client base for my side hustle, studying for my state real estate exam, cuddling my precious baby boy, being a loving partner to my amazing fiance´ and not living in a pig sty & maybe seeing my friends once a month…
On the outside, I appear organized, calm, cool & collected. On the inside, I’m a wreck somedays. I’m trying to enjoy these early days with my son that I know are going by so fast. Last night I asked my fiance´ what he had in store for his evening & his reply was simple: “change my shirt, practice some guitar & watch an episode of “Silicon Valley” I think I missed”.
The plans for my evening included a long list of house chores, guest preparation, packing for a 2 week trip in a backpack and the never ending purging of the closet. Jealously overwhelmed me at that moment. Why can’t my life be as simple as his? I thought to myself. My eyes began swelling up with tears as I stand in his office before him.
How do we as women balance our lives in a way that’s pleasing to ourselves? A balance where we can have a beautiful organized home, lives full of celebrations & loved ones and still have the ability to provide for our family. Everyday I take baby steps in finding my balance toward the person I want to become. And now I’m okay with that.
If you have any tips to how you ease your work-life balance I’d love to hear them!
