Isn’t that a beautiful quote? (source)
Let’s just let it sink in for a minute. I know so many of you are struggling with “doing it all”. Being the perfect mother and wife. Working outside of the home or never finding one second to yourself if you stay home with your kids. Trying to be all the things to all the people all the time.
It’s rough, and I get it. Something about me getting towards the end of this pregnancy and realizing my whole world is about to change (again), has made me stop and realize that all these little things that seem so important, really are not. I do not have to have a perfectly clean house all the time. It’s okay if the laundry piles never end. No one minds when I don’t have the energy to cook dinner and order a pizza instead.
What’s important is that I’m present for my family. That instead of rushing Hudson out the door each morning that I take a few minutes to cuddle with him in bed. The sloppy kisses and chubby toddler hands grabbing my face and whispering “I love you mama” in my ear make it all worth it.
We don’t have to do it all. We don’t have to be perfect bloggers with pinterest worthy posts every day. We just have to “be all here”…wherever that may be, in whatever we are doing.
