Time: There is Never Enough

One thing that we as moms never have enough of is time. Time for our families, time for our work and time for ourselves. With expectations of others, feeling like you have to spend this amount of time with someone or making sure you are at your job the right amount of time to get stuff accomplished or taking the time to plan necessary things in your life that need to get done. It is very common for me to get overwhelmed each day just thinking about Time.

Family: for those that are married and have kids and work full time. How do you do it!? I am the master of multi-tasking but I feel most days is a trainwreck. Getting up super early to get myself ready, then making sure my child is ready and on time to school. Trying not to be late which is a constant worry of mine. Kissing my husband goodbye early morning and not seeing him until when he kisses me late night from work (he is a chef). Getting to work and making sure I complete each task needed for the day and not forget anything.

Health: Oh and let me not forget! Did I work out that day? We as women are scrutinized and pushed to be a certain way in society along with trying to keep our health in check. Who has time to eat healthy and work out! Not me. If I feel good at the end of the day that is good for me! I know working out is important and eating healthy. I have actually started cutting out sugar and white flour and feel fantastic, not as a diet but as a life change. Something I can actually stick to. Only because I do not have time to plan out meals, plan my workouts, research this diet or that diet. I get in what I can.

My Brain: Most everything in life revolves around time. Usually my brain is mush by the end of the day. Being a Healthcare Administrator requires me to be on point all day at work, so it usually leaves little "time" to think about anything else. Doctor's appointments, dance schedules, car service appointments, laundry, paying the bills, doing the taxes, keeping up with birthdays and anniversaries, getting groceries, home repairs etc. The list goes on and on which is why my brain is mush. Are there any other mamas out there with this problem! Raise your hand!

Things I have learned about time:

Don't worry about it! Some things are just not important enough to worry about. Pick your battles ladies, with life and your husbands/partners hehe. As a Christian these two verses come to mind and have helped me. I hope they will help you too! And if not, remember the things we cannot change, don't worry about those. Those things we can change, Change them! Make time for yourself, ask for help if you need it, go in the bathroom or your closet and just close your eyes and breathe. Mamas "We Got This".

Matthew 6:33-34 "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself."

Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
