Taking Some Time Off Your Search

Day 18-10:40 pm: Ok, I’m running on fumes. I’m going to be honest with you. This whole staying up late, applying for jobs, working a part time job, running after a toddler, and building a business is starting to really take its toll. So, I decided I needed one day. Just one day. To put one thing on hold. So I didn’t apply for any jobs this afternoon.

Mommy needs to take a break.

It’s gotta be ok for you to take a break. Give yourself permission to put something on hold. You need to take a break, too. Because if mommy is overwhelmed, the rest of the family is overwhelmed.

Also, if something else falls on your plate, you don’t want to crumble. My hubby was home with a cold so he spent all day in bed. Which meant that even though he was home, I still had to take care of everything around the house. And, bath time and bed time. So with that added responsibility, I just couldn’t do everything.

Have you ever had one of those days?

It’s ok if you do. You are totally allowed to put something on hold. Leave the dishes in the sink. Order take-out, or don’t pick up the playroom. It will be fine. You need to take care of yourself and your priorities.

Which is why it is important to stay organized. Keeping track of your to-do list and your top priorities is so important. Don’t worry about things that are at the bottom if you are too busy that day. Take care of the things that you really need to do first. But, make sure that you make the tasks manageable. Put little things on there so you can cross them off. Trust me, you will feel so much better and like you are making progress.

I’ll post more about that soon. But please remember, give yourself some time off. It’s worth it. You are worth it.
