Tough day today. It always is, the first day back after some time off, but it seemed especially difficult today. I have had some kind of crisis in confidence. As soon as I am trying to do multiple things, it all goes a bit wrong in my head. I fear this is the way it is going to be for the rest of the school holidays. I am sure many working mothers can identify. But…………………. I have to remember I can only do one thing at a time.
- Something I learnt today: I have to back myself more. A difficult situation at work and I am completely thrown. Why? Because I don’t back myself, I doubt myself as an automatic response. I automatically think I am wrong.
- Something I am grateful for: Pretty sure I have said this before, but today seems appropriate to say it again. WINE!
- Something I want to improve: Well after yesterday, not having anything to say and feeling content, I feel the complete opposite. I feel like there is a list today. It comes down to the fact that I want to improve balancing motherhood, work and my own mental health. But, that is being very harsh. At the end of the day in all situations, I did the best I could at the time. I am not superhuman. I am just a regular human trying to get by. The standards I set for myself are just way too high.
Tomorrow is a new day.
