Have you found it? Shoot, I am really trying to, but its DANG hard. I want to do it all. I want to be the best mama, artist, teacher and wife, like the BEST. But, to be completely honest, I have been kind of sucking at ALL of those roles. Nothing too bad- my baby is happy and healthy, complete with the most amazing thigh rolls, my art is being published and the ideas are flowing, my students are asking questions and creating, and my husband wears a clean, wrinkle and dog-hair free (to the best of my ability, some is inevitable) uniform to work. But, still I feel that I am failing, falling and can't catch my breath. I am coming off of a week "break," a relative term in motherhood, but I don't know if I am all that rested. Despite this constant state of mombie, I know I can do this. I know I can attend to all my people and still make all of the things. It's all about balance, and I just need to slow down and find it. Somedays, a few times an hour. I will be examining ways to create balance for myself, research the paradox of the 'working mother' (although ALL mothers work, so please know this is NOT a dig at you SAHMs, you women are my muse) and 'do it all' so I would appreciate any and all suggestions, secrets and words of wisdom. How do you keep it all together and still wake up wanting more?
