How to cut oneself some slack

Standard

After a day like today, having completed stuff at work I’ve been pushing away for a looong time, then getting all the house cleaned in the evening… Just deserves a “high five” to myself! I mean, I’ve been all week doing housework till late in the evening (for my standards), got the freezer filled, got sone good projects finalized at work, even planted some salads and greens (and watered them every evening!!! Apparently that helps to avoid them dying under your eyes) and got all laundry done, bathrooms and floors cleaned!
And that’s the moment where you have to celebrate thr moment, right?
My advice: be good to yourself, you deserve it!!
Happy weekend to all!

P.S. Yes, these are strawberries fresh from the garden in a glass of ice cold crémant. The kids forgot they had picked them (the strawberries) so, good for me! 😀

On the road from chaos to zenity

Standard

Being a mom isn’t easy. Being a wife isn’t easy. Working a stressful job isn’t easy at all times either.

And the whole combined together easily melts into a huge mess where you struggle to do your best and more or less survive. In the end of the day, though, as you finally sit down, you feel as if you haven’t accomplished anything.

Knowing myself how frustrating it can be, and how tough it is to meet up to all your goals and dreams, and having gone through more downs than ups for a long period of time, life has taught me a set of lessons.

And everyday, I try to find small little steps to feel more happy, more balanced in life, and to attend to my own needs in order to function in all my different roles.

I hope some of you want to join me on this trip to more zenity in your life.
