An Almost Perfect Mom

I have come to the realization lately that I just can not do it all. It’s impossible. I can’t be 100% mom, 100% wife, 100% business woman, and 100% me. Mathematically, it doesn’t add it.  I am horrible at math and even I can figure that one out.

But I have still been struggling lately to do it all. To be there for the kids all of the time. To be on top of game work-wise. To just be me.

It’s hard, y’all.

And then I cracked open a fortune cookie and read this:an almost perfect momIt couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

When we try to be everything every minute of the day, we will fail at something. I have to let go of trying to being everything all the time and start focusing on just being one thing at a time.

Focus on just being an awesome mom when I am with the boys.

Focus on just being an awesome photographer when I am with clients.

Focus on just being, well, awesome!

And I’m ok with that. I am ok with being an almost perfect mom.

Today, I’m Pouring My Heart Out with Things I Can’t Say.

    We can’t do it all! Sometimes it’s best to let go of trying so hard so we can enjoy what’s right in front of us that we ARE doing well! 😉 Stopped by from Shell’s place.

  5. Stopping by from the BloggyMoms Blog Hop. I needed to see that fortune cookie. This is one of the things that I struggle with, trying to be everything to everybody. It just doesn’t happen. I’m learning to say no to the things that aren’t important and focusing on the things and people in my life who are the most important. Thanks!
