We all know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. I think that’s a daily occurrence for most mothers. But what do we do when we feel like we can barely breathe?
A friend of mine once shared some wise, wise words: “Whenever I feel like my family is ‘getting in the way’ of my life, that’s an indicator that I have too much on my plate.”
Light bulb moment!
Yes, that was exactly it for me, as well. No mother wants to feel chronically harried and frustrated, but when we are trying to do more than is humanly possible (ahem…most of us), it’s totally natural to feel like our families are slowing us down.
That is not the way we want to live. That is not the way we want to remember these years with children in our home.
In this audio post, I’ll share with you a strategy that has consistently helped me to manage what’s on my plate–and in the process, find more joy in my family.
I’m confident it will help you to do the same.
