The days are long and hard but are also flying by so quickly. I often feel that I am just trying to make it through the day. Living so many days in survival mode and simply going through the motions.
Days like these often start and end cranky. The only goal of the day is to make sure everyone is safe, fed and in bed by 7:15pm.
When survival mode hits I stop speaking kindly to myself, my husband, and my kids. I spend my days stressed out and my nights beating myself up for feeling like I’m failing at parenthood. I forget to breathe, forget to smile, forget to slow down and enjoy life.
it’s time for a change.
it’s time to stop surviving and start thriving.
it’s time for creative play.
it’s time for kind words and lots of laughter.
it’s time to be present.
it’s time to ask for help.
it’s time to savor the moments and make memories.
it’s time to feel lighter and less burdened.
it’s time to thrive.
