Mental Strength

My mind is always in constant overdrive. I feel like I am planning and thinking in my sleep. As a mom, I am always wondering how the kids are doing at school….are they learning, being treated OK, or just simply having a good day. I sit at my desk with my to-do list of action items to complete while simultaneously thinking about what to cook for dinner. It’s enough to wear you out. No wonder I’m mentally exhausted. I want to have one of those “Calgon” moments where I can sit in a bubble bath and relax my mind and body. Then I snap back to reality and remember there is too much to be done and no time for bubble baths.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste! I totally get that, but what if i just want a small break. You know, to recharge. Every morning I thank God for allowing me to see a new day, for waking up next to my loving husband, and for being able to walk up the stairs and get the kids out of bed. That’s huge to me! Immediately after processing the fact that I’m grateful, my mind starts to spin and I’m in combat mode ready to conquer the day.

To all the mom’s, I share Galatians 6:9 – “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Blessings and strength to all!
