Recently, I was at a mom’s get-together. I don’t remember what we were talking about but, in the middle of the conversation, one of the moms said sheepishly, “Well, actually I have a cleaning lady who comes every other week.”
She looked ashamed to even admit this audibly, but I quickly set her at ease by looking directly in her eyes and saying, “Good for you!”
We women tend to think that unless we’re doing every little thing to run our homes we are failures. We beat ourselves up if we can’t do it all. We feel guilty for even considering bringing in a little outside help on occasion.
While you’re over on MomLife, don’t forget to enter to win a free ticket to MomLife Bootcamp. I’m so excited about this event in March. I’ll be speaking on how dealing with exhaustion and how to stay refreshed and energized instead of being overwhelmed and exhausted by long to-do lists and busy schedules. I’d love to meet you there!
