It is nice to talk to grown ups who have learned work/life/love balance. I had the pleasure of that experience last night. I’m amazed by how organized other people are and can be. I feel like a disheveled mess most of the time, just barely able to keep the ends from unraveling into a pile of mismatched thread. I like structure and organization, but it hard to achieve that when I’m always hustling around trying to be perfect. Yikes what a shit-ton of pressure.
Maybe that can be my New Year’s resolution…get my shit together. Make some structure and organization. Relax a little.
I can be a great mom and not cook fancy dinner every night. I can still be a great mom and not clean. I can still be a great mom and work late sometimes, and drink too much sometimes, and make stupid mistakes because being a great mom is really about being a human being and not about being perfect. Rinse and repeat.
Thanks for that inspiration. You know who you are.
