Most days I don’t know if I am going left or right.
A normal day for me would be up at 5am, breakfast with the kids, pack school bags, put a load of washing on, load the dishwasher and out the door at 7:30am. We first head to the daycare center and drop the girls off then onto Cooper’s school by 8:30am.
I generally arrive at the studio by 9am and spend my time here answering emails, marketing my products and making some personal calls. I am then off again at 2:30pm to do the school pick up. We arrive home around 4pm and then it’s homework, dinner, bath, books and bed.
After all this is done it’s time for a little morning washing, clean up the kitchen and relax for an hour before bed time for me.
I am asked so often how do you do it all and my answer is I don’t know, I just do.
When you become a mum its like you are given these new super powers that allow you to just get everything done with the time that we are given. My biggest flaw is allowing time for myself.
Along with my new super powers I was also given the guilt emotion. I rarely do much for myself as there is just not enough time and any little bit of time that I am given I really just enjoy spending time with my family.
Recently health issues have arisen for me and made me realise that you do need that 2 minutes to just sit, breathe and reflect.
I love reading and always have. I try to always have a new book on hand so that when the kids are watching the Wiggles I can be with them but can also do something that I enjoy.
Some day’s I want to be just a mum and other day’s I wish I had a normal admin job where I could walk in and walk out and not have the stress of being a business owner.
But to sit and reflect allows me to recognise that I have an amazing life, with a loving husband and three beautiful children. I have been able to follow my entrepreneurial spirit.
Not everyday is easy if you are a stay at home mum, single mum, wealthy entrepreneur or somebody that is trying to accomplish it all. I have come to realise that everyone has a struggle in life. Be kind and thoughtful to all around you. Your kind words could change someone’s day.
Mums – don’t be to hard on yourselves you are doing a wonderful job and I am sure it is the best job you can be doing.
Follow your heart and follow your dreams.
