Crazy week? Ya, me too.
I’m beginning to realize that we’re always crazy, us Stows.
“How are you guys doing?”, someone asks.
“Ya know, it’s been crazy.” Summer is crazy, Christmas time is crazy, back-to-school time is crazy. I’m beginning to realize that motherhood and parenting is simply, CRAZY!
It seems as though everyone else’s needs come first, always. The minute after Emily was born is when life seemed to change. Everything we do is about the kids, for the kids, with the kids.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the crazy. Having grown up in crazy, it’s all I’ve ever known. But being a mom and having to take charge of the crazy, whoa. I’m so glad I married a man who is always so willing to take on his fair share of crazy. I wouldn’t survive without him.
With all the crazy, we tend to forget about our own selves. Our own needs. Relaxation. Self care. We might let ourselves get lost in the crazy. We need to check-in with ourselves and tune-up. We all need to find a way to take care of our aches, pains and stress. Find an outlet.
Running has been a #BecauseMoment for me. I need to run at least once per week to get outside, breathe deeply, focus my energy on me and de-stress. It helps me live better. I feel like a better wife, mom, friend, daughter, sister – all of it, when I run.
Taking time for yourself does wonders for life balance and overall well being. We all need to unwind and refresh on the regular.
