So for those of you who don't know, I am a mom of 3 amazing (all parents say that) boys. I am also married (going on 18 years) and own a cool dog. I also work a full time job and am an entrepreneur, owner, designer, dreamer, goal setter, mastermind of Crab Terror Island.
I do a lot.
Life is really fucking full at times. (Sorry for the F-bomb, but honestly I talk like a sailor).
When I meet people, and they find out all that I have going on, the typical response is "Wow, that sounds exhausting."
Life is really, really exhausting.
Between homework, school lunches, field trips, laundry, grocery shopping, showers, work, more work, marketing, designing, eating, permission slips, not working out, board meetings, performance reviews, blog posts, Facebook posts, Instagram posts, setting up at events, taking down at events, being at events, responding to emails, drinking coffee, taking the dog out, yelling at my kids, freaking out because the cable bill is late....I would say that I am maxed out.
Aren't we all?
So how do I do it?
I cry a lot, I try to focus on only the good, but that doesn't last long. I over promise and under deliver on a lot. I think I am failing at most everything. I don't work out. I drink to much coffee and eat to many bagels. I am in a little bit of a bad mood most of the time. I am always tired. Go through a lot of concealer. That list goes on and on.
What I do is juggle.
I juggle the family. The bills. The household chores. Work. Business.
I am a master juggler.
Because the truth of it is. I wouldn't have it any other way.
The chaos of my life is mine, and I don't want to change it. I might not be perfect, my kids might not be in honors classes, my house might be a disaster, I could probably stand to hire a bookkeeper for CTI, but its mine.
And I will juggle it like no other.
Thanks for reading!
