My husband and I have been married for 20 years. My husband helps me around the house, he’s an involved father with our children, we love each other and are a happy couple. People see this and they envy us, they think we have the “perfect” marriage. They compare our marriage to their marriage and they just can’t understand why they don’t have what we have. What they don’t see is roller coaster ride we took to get there.
Ever wish you could turn back time and redo something you felt you did wrong? In life we make mistakes and there is nothing we can do about it. I often look back in my life to see all of the mistakes I’ve made and realize maybe they weren’t actually mistakes.
Pleasures Are Meaningless. I want a new house, new car, new furniture, a vacation and to have money without worry. Do you find yourself wanting these things too?
Everything is meaningless. Those are hard words especially when we are often looking to find meaning in everything we do.
The things I struggle with as a mom is disciplining my children and having a clean home. I want my discipline to matter to our children. I want our clean home to reflect how proud I am. However the repetitiveness of both tasks exhaust me and it seems my efforts are meaningless.
Finding meaning in the day to day chaos of life is hard. Lately I’ve been trying to make sense of it in everything we do.
Becoming a mom changes your life. You have to deal with this little infant 24/7 and somehow you forget all about yourself. You become overwhelmed with this child, your home, your spouse and work that it just becomes a way of life. We get so used to putting everyone before us, that many of us moms become depressed, lonely and lost.
