My life has become easier, but it has also become more stressful. That may not even make sense to most people, so I will try to explain it. Back when I could barely walk, I wasn't able to cook, grocery shop, Target runs, take the kids to their activities,etc. Therefore, I was never stressed about getting it all done and I wasn't expected to get it all done in one day.
Now days, however, I'm busy trying to do fun things with my kids, try to do new things for myself and everything else that comes with being a stay at home mom. The reason I get so stressed out trying to accomplish all of it, is because I never really learned how to manage it all. I try to be a really strong person, but at times I feel like I am failing my family as I'm not able to complete my daily tasks. More than anything, I want to be a great wife and mother and I guess that's why it can seem so stressful at times.
With that being said, I think I need to take a deep breath and tell myself that tomorrow is a new day. All the things I didn't get done today, that probably won't get done tomorrow either, don't really matter when I look at the big picture. What matters is that I have a wonderful, healthy family and the physical and mental capabilities to take care of them.
