“My home is so disorganized…why can’t I get my life together?”
Have you ever opened an email asking you to join a meal-train and thought to yourself, “Yeah right. I can’t even get healthy dinners on the table for my own family! If I signed up for this, that would mean another pizza night for my family and I’ve already taken that cop-out twice this month.”
Then you think about who the meal-train is for, and how their life is so much more difficult than yours right now, and you feel that little sting of guilt. It’s frustrating.
Does getting a decent dinner on the table have to be this hard?
When your kids ask, “Mommy would you play with us?” do you automatically think about the mess?
Ugh. There are already toys scattered all over the house! For every 10 minutes of play time there seems to be an hour of pulling teeth getting the kids to tidy up; it’s just not worth it.
Then you feel like a failure because you’re not the “fun mom” you’re supposed to be. Does dealing with toys have to be
Have you ever wanted to invite friends over, but you hesitate because you don’t like the way your house looks? Have you ever wished you could commit to a date night with your husband, or finally get in shape, or read a book once in a while?
Every time you give up on one of those goals, and you feel that pang of guilt, you become more convinced that you are failing. Failing at being a wife. Failing at being a mother. Failing at life.
This is not how we are meant to live! When the regular everyday obligations of your basic schedule require every ounce of effort you have, you become trapped.
Yes, taking care of a house, raising children, and having a healthy marriage will always be work – and that’s okay. There will also inevitably be temporary seasons when circumstances overwhelm us and you need to call on others for help – and that’s okay.
But if a normal day, in a normal week, stretches you so thin that you have nothing left to give, then it’s time for a change.
Every time you ask, “Does it have to be this hard?” The answer is a resounding, “NO!”
