I don't know about you but some days it's easy to feel I'm just going through the motions. Filling my day waiting for Alan to walk in the door before dinner. Going through the bedtime routine so we can get to that 7pm deadline when I can grab even 30 undisturbed minutes to myself. Waiting for the weekend when we have time as a family. But it struck me recently, am I wishing away motherhood?
With constant demands and pressure today it's no wonder so many of us get burnt out, stressed or exhausted. I see so many mums who are desperately trying to keep up with the demands of doing it all and yet feel overwhelmed or have lost peace - I know I've been there at times! But once that happens, how do we get it back again? How do we learn to live in joy and peace rather than fear?
