Juggling Work

15.07.17

 

Is it just me or are you all exhausted too? 
Being a parent is tough but juggling a family and work is never ever easy. 

 

In my family my husband works full time and i work part time. Im the one who makes sure we are all organised, however it doesn't always go to plan. 

It's like a constant train of thoughts going through my head "Did I remember to pack Ethans hat" "Did I buy eggs for marks lunch" and then you have the dreaded work thoughts "oh god did I sent that email" "Did i remember to do...." It's never ending! 

 

Then you have the guilt. The guilty feeling that you aren't spending enough time with your child, that you haven't made time for your husband,friends and family. You get that horrible feeling that you are failing at life and that you feel like you aren't a good enough parent. 

Although you work "part time" your job doesn't end at clocking off from your "paying job" it lasts a full 24hrs, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

 

We spend most of our time worrying about everyone else and making sure they are all okay that we forget to make time for ourselves and forget to make sure that we are okay. 

I'm learning to make time for ME even if it's only a few hours. Sometimes you need to be selfish and put yourself first, if you don't it can make life harder and can make you unhappy. 

Even with the stress of juggling everything and organising a family I wouldn't want to be without a job. 


My job gives me a break, an outlet to talk to other adults, a sense of independence and makes me proud to know I'm helping to support my family. 

It's important to show our children what a strong work ethic is and that if you want something in life you need to work for it. 
I also believe as women we should teach our daughters that it's okay to not want to be a stay at home mum and that you can have a career AND a family. As fathers it's important to show your children the same lesson and to show them how to support a family. 

 

Everything we do in life has an impact on our children and even though some times it seems easier to give up it's important to teach our children these important life lessons. We will always be tired,stressed and feel guilty but we will carry on. 

So to all you working parents out there I salute you! You are doing a great job and keep it up!
