Stop. Take a breath.
Last week I found that I had to keep telling myself this. From a quick trip to the beach that proved to be a lot of work (though loaded with fun) vs. my old, relaxing beach trips pre-baby. And then on to a packed week full of broadcast appearances, 4th of July festivities, trip to Austin, sick kid and so much more…I have really been feeling like I can’t catch my breath (or sleep).
Since becoming a mother I’ve really learned the importance of breathing (even though I sometimes forget). I’m struggling with deciding where to compromise right now. I thought I would finally get the hang of this as Luke got older. I want to be that awesome mom for Luke and try to plan lots of activities for him but then I really enjoy my work and don’t want to give up anything there. And as I run around like a crazy person, I’m constantly praying that I’m making the right choices. Again I tell myself as I type…stop…take a breath.
