Mom, step-mom, cook, cleaner, taxi driver, mompreneur, business woman, wife, lover, friend, daughter…chances are you’re pretty much all of them in any given day.
In the midst of this highly skilled project managing, how do you make time for yourself without feeling guilty? When you’re juggling so many roles, how do you leave the project manager persona at the front door and remember your partner and kids are not a work-package? How do you not get angry and frustrated because no-one thought about getting dinner started and you’ve had a hard day too? How come no-one really knows what you’d really love for your birthday? Why do you feel like a pack-horse laden down with the family’s stuff whenever you go anywhere? What happened to feeling like a total hotty?
You know how it is. You try hard but you don’t know how to really change it so it sticks. When you’re worn out from multi-tasking, how do you keep the passion alive and feel sexy? One magazine says you can have it all, another says you can’t, another says you shouldn’t…
Let’s get off that merry-go-round for a second and take a deep breath. As Gandhi once said “There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.” We all have needs and when we meet those needs positively, then happiness floods in…and you can’t have too much happiness! Ever! Imagine it, happy and no guilt attached.
Imagine it, happy and no guilt attached.
So, for one afternoon leave the kids with your partner, arrange a play-date or get a babysitter and take some time for yourself.
