I loved this post from Simple Mom. People often ask me how I do it all, and I just have to laugh. Trust me, I do NOT have it all together. And I most certainly do not do “it all.” No one does. We make choices, and we all make time for what is most important to us.
Yes, I cook from scratch and grow a few herbs. I make time for blogging and watching my favorite TV shows. I run a blog design business and keep the household running (whether it’s running smoothly or not is another story.) I put on makeup most days, but not all. And sometimes not until after noon.
But here are some things I do not do. What about you? What don’t you do?
I don’t home school.
I don’t have pets.
I don’t scrapbook.
I don’t make jewelry.
I don’t garden.
I don’t exercise consistently.
I don’t make the most of my SLR or Photoshop.
I don’t always get my laundry put away.
I don’t mistreat my house.
I don’t sprout my own wheat.
I don’t volunteer.
I don’t even clean my own house. Sure, I do a heckuvalot of straightening up and wiping of counters and sweeping of floors and washing of dishes, but ever since I started my blog design business, I’ve had the luxury of a professional cleaning service. And I’m here to tell you, I’d sell my right arm and my handbag collection to keep her.
We women have a bad habit of comparing ourselves to others, but we need to remember that NO ONE does “it all” and we should never feel inferior to someone else because they do something we don’t do. Can I get an Amen?
