When I was a little girl, my dreams of growing up, never included motherhood, a family, or a home with a white picket fence.
I never dreamed of homeschooling, or of being responsible for someone other than myself. I surely never expected (or wanted) to be a working mom.
Mothering is challenging, and homeschooling is hard work.
Making a living and running a business while mothering and homeschooling is pure insanity, and this is where the need for encouragement for the work from home mom, comes from.
One of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn as a mother, is that I can’t do it all.
I’ve tried doing-all-the-things, and I’ve managed to survive doing-all-the-things, but I’ve never managed to stay afloat for very long. Working from home, adds another strain to our already insane lives.The best thing we can do, for ourselves, and our family, is to ask for help. Click To Tweet
I’m not the best at asking for help, but I’ve finally learned to recognize when I’m in over my head.
With time, I’ve learned to look for certain signs, that show me I’m way inover your head, and in desperate need for help.
I know you’re tired. I am too. Remember you’re not alone, and that the lessons your children will learn by watching your diligence and your willingness to work and provide for their needs, will leave a lasting impression in their hearts.
Follow me over to The Character Corner, where I’ll share a little more about my work-from-home-mom journey, the signs I look for, and what I remember , in order to refresh.
