Last fall the walls were about to cave in. Really. In many ways, my world was coming apart.
If you’re a mother, you know exactly what I mean:
- Exhaustion: Check
- Countless meals out: Check
- Irritability: Check
- An inability to do ANYTHING well: Check
Truly, you can only hold on like this for so long. When last semester ended, I did what any sane teacher mom would do. I disconnected.
No social media pressure. No play date merry-go-round. No books about parenting. And no cheap, meaningless conversation.
In short, I returned to all the little things that I had forgotten along the busy motherhood way. And, in this, I focused on a work-life reset.
So what is the “secret” that helped me pull through?
