I know I do. I recall one semester in particular in college when three days a week the only item on my to do list was to attend a single one hour class. At least once a week this proved to be too much for my 20-year-old self and I would inevitably wake up at lunchtime and have the audacity to feel bitter about the fact that I would have to put on pants to walk to the cafeteria to be served lunch.
Nowadays, by the time the clock strikes noon I’ve bathed and dressed myself and two others, packed a gym bag, a diaper bag, and a book bag, gotten the kids off to school, survived an hour-long commute, and am three meetings deep into my day.
I am mom. Hear me roar…or yawn.
Balance is something I’ve struggled with since becoming a wife, a mother, and beginning my career all within the same 12 months. I still haven’t quite mastered the art of whittling down my to do list while carving out an adequate amount of “me” time, but I have picked up a few tips and tricks over the last five years and today I’m going to share them with you.
