For months I’ve been struggling with the idea of not feeling enough and wanting to do more. It wasn’t until I started focusing on the juggling act method that I began to notice a difference in my everyday life.
I went from wanting more to feeling content with less. That’s when it hit me.
I was letting go of that supermom complex I had, and I was making room for others in my life.
Leaning On Others
For years, I struggled with the idea of depending on my husband. One of the reasons why I turned Motherhood Through My Eyes into a business was to take off some of the financial weight on husband’s shoulders.
Life can be stressful at times, and it may feel as though you’ve got everything under control. There are instances when you feel defeated, and that’s. It just means you’re being human.
Together, we’ve been able to accomplish more. Through the years, I’ve learned to lean on him whenever I’ve felt overwhelmed. We always joke about how well we work together — and we really do.
Understanding The Value Of Mom Friends
My husband isn’t the only one I’ve let into my support system. There are other moms with similar goals who’ve been an inspiration for me since starting my blog.
It’s amazing to look back at how we’ve all been able to help one another, and watch each other grow.
I met another mom recently who has helped me kickstart a lot of the things I had written on a list. We inspire each other to go after our goals.
This mom and I met during a time in my life when I thought I’d be helping her, when in fact, I’ve been helping myself as well.
It’s funny how things work.
Finding a mom friend is like dating again. You practically go on several play dates before you can find one mom who won’t judge you because your car is a mess, or will watch you struggling with your child and leave you to fend for yourself (yes, there are moms like that).
Meeting someone who understands that I can’t attend every mommy-and-me play date or answer phone calls during the day, is always a bonus.
When you work on helping others, everything starts to fall into place. It’s nice to encounter other moms who understand the value of teamwork.
Here’s to having a strong support system — because we can always use a friend in this mom life.
