We all have those days. The ones where we are ready to throw in the towel. That dirty towel that cleaned up spilled milk, a snotty nose, and the dinner no one wanted to eat. You’re not going to throw it in the wash, you’re just going to throw it in and be done. Hand over the reins to someone else because you just have had enough.
We’ve all been there.
I have less of these days now. I have more days of strength to face the tackles of being a wife and a mother head on. I have more days of confidence that I am doing a good job, even if I yelled today. And speaking of yelling, I do that less too. I have more days where I wake up excited to face the day, even knowing that I will clean up the same mess more than once, I might make a dinner that no one will want to eat, and I might hit the pillow with a crash and a bang. But I’m ready. I’m ready to be a wife and a mom and be happy about it. I might even feel blessed today.
Do you notice the difference? No I don’t have a magic tip that will make your family excited to eat your dinner. I didn’t find the miracle tool that will make your kids clean up their own mess without being asked. And I sure as hell didn’t find the fairy dust that makes laundry wash, dry, fold, and put it self away. I did find podcasts, though.
I found podcasts by wives and mothers. There are some that are incredibly motivating and help bring me back to reality. They take me out of my ‘why me pity parties’ and help me realized that I actually love this crazy life.
