Why are we so hard in ourselves?
Lately, I’ve been hard on myself – like, super hard. I wish I was farther along, I could get my life together, and I had more motivation. I mean, the list can go on and on.
Why didn’t I meet my sales goals? Why isn’t money magically appearing? Why are there more expenses and bills this month? Why can’t I manage all of this? Why are all of these things and more happening?
Oh, I forgot to clean today. The clothes are still in the dryer. Oh, and my son is climbing on me for attention. The dogs need food and now have my shoes. Like, this is life. I’m sure every single mom can relate.
It doesn’t matter if you have a business or you’re working, if you have one kid, three kids, none of that matters. We’re all going through the same experience. We feel these frustrations often, and we sit there, we try to navigate through, and think our lives are harder or different than the person next to us. We’re all just trying to figure it out together.
I honestly think that trying to manage a business while having kids, personally, is the hardest. I’ve worked when I have kids, and it was hard too. But I think owning a business and being a mom is by far the hardest thing ever because you have to have the time management and everything under control.
The truth is it is hard to be a parent. Before being a parent, I had no idea… right? No one does. But I had no idea how big of a role time management and multitasking played. I didn’t realize how forgetful I would be and how much I would procrastinate. At the end of the day though, I know my son is only going to be this age once, so I need to take it all in while I can.
What are your biggest obstacles as a mother or business owner or both?
