I've spent so much time trying to find balance being a mom. What I'm starting to realize is that it's really impossible.
I can't always be the best mom, the best wife, the best coach, the best friend, have the cleanest house, cook the best meals, etc.
But what I can do, is take each season of life as it comes and learn to be okay with just being okay at some things.
One day I may be a super patient, present, loving mother but my house may look like a cyclone hit it (my mother's favorite line!). That's OKAY!
The next day, I may be a super attentive, supportive coach, but I have to put Stella in front of the TV for a while in order to do so. That's OKAY!
Date night with my hubby means leaving my kiddos with a sitter. That's OKAY!
Maybe we should stop trying to focus so much on balance and doing everything perfectly. Instead, maybe we could just take each day as it comes and be proud and thankful for the small things that we get accomplished.
