Ok so to start by being brutally honest..and not just with you but also myself. I haven’t been doing so great Trying to cope with life as a mother of 3 children is hard work! Not only am I physically exhausted at the end of each day, but mentally and emotionally I am drained.
I have been thinking about coming back to my blog for… well lets just say ever since my last post – a long time! I have also been working on our YouTube channels as well as being the wife, mother and homemaker that I am. I have felt very overwhelmed when I think about all the things that I want or feel that I need to be doing. It has felt like everything has been just out of my reach.
My biggest problem is that I am a perfectionist – yup a big one. I put a lot of pressure on myself to be perfect at everything I do…this I know is unrealistic and leaves me feeling like a failure as NOTHING works out how I planned or wanted it to. I am learning (albeit slowly) to give myself more grace with everything and trying to come to terms with the fact that I can’t do absolutely everything right now – and that that’s ok.
This new ‘Just Me’ section of my blog is somewhere where I am hoping to come and be honest and share with you all where I’m at in my journey. Also I’m hoping that by allowing myself a space to be more vulnerable and open with you all, that I won’t feel so alone in this crazy thing called life! Figuring out motherhood, being a wife, trying to be a business woman and all round working out who Just Emma-Kate is!
Until next time…
