As I sit here with my first cup of coffee this morning, my mind is racing about all the things I need to get done and all the things I have failed to get done. Every day my to-do list seems to get longer and my days seem to get shorter. I tend to be very tough on myself. I beat myself up constantly for not getting enough done or for not being able to finish something I start. I need to ease up on myself and think about the positives and things I do manage to get done.
I manage to get three out of the four of my daughters up, dressed, fed and on time to the bus every day.
I manage to maintain a clean house and do endless loads of laundry and dishes every day.
I manage to keep everyone fed and all bills paid.
I have managed to blow my knee out by chasing my two year old up and down the stairs 40 times a day.
I have managed to loose 10 pounds.
I have managed to beat out 200 people for the job I have gotten.
I have managed to even find a job in a really tough economy to help with finances.
I have managed to fill the 24 hours I am given everyday with 28 hours of things to do.
I have managed to give my family all that I am.
I have managed to love my husband and daughters with every fiber of my being.
When is the last time you stopped and gave yourself a pat on the back for all that you do???
