One thing that I have loved so much about blogging is that many of the blogs I read are written by mothers. Not only are these bloggers entertaining writers with design talent coming out of their wazoos, they are also with me in the trenches of motherhood. So often I find myself reading other blogs and comparing myself to the amazing authors. I wonder how they have time to get it all done, as well as, continually come up with creative content. So, it always makes me feel better when a little slice of reality shines through and I am reminded that, no matter what, balancing motherhood with any other task is extremely hard. Emotionally, mentally, and logistically.
So many days I feel like I come up short because there always seems to be one area of my life that is suffering. Some days I bust out all kinds of posts I am proud of while in the background I am burning dinner. Other days I go to bed knowing that I really spent quality time with my kids instead of being plastered to a computer yet I feel a pang of guilt about the emails that didn’t get a response yet. I am learning to let go of the guilt and just accept that what I got done for that day is enough. And if things are ever going to slant in one direction, I want them to be in the direction of my kids.
So lately when I have come across some of my favorite blogs I have felt a huge wave of relief at what they are posting.
Here is one I love…
