As women how often do we feel like we are losing our minds? Rather your day is filled with shuffling kids to and from school and practices, extracurricular activities or working all day in corporate America, or in many cases (including mine) both. Only add keeping house, doing church activities, date nights and yes occasionally sleeping. No matter what we are doing physically, mentally we are doing twice that much. How is it while cooking in my head, I am also doing the budget, planning a kids birthday party, creating an outfit for work, worrying if my three year old’s speech should be clearer by now, stressing over the piece of bread I ate today and how it is not helping my weight loss, and the list goes on and on. This type of mental workout happens all day every day. When my husband lays down he is snoring in 2.5 seconds. When I lay down I plan, I think, I even dream before I go to sleep. Why do I do this? I DON’T KNOW! My brain doesn’t shut off, it’s more like it goes to cruise control. It’s going but I’m not in control of it. So I tell myself maybe I am a little crazy, and that’s okay. My family will have a good meal. My kid will have a memorable birthday. I’ll be cute at work, and more than likely my three year olds speech is just fine. He did tell me quite clearly today that he wants a real T- rex for his birthday, and when I said okay, he plainly stated I was the best mom ever!! In that moment, I fell in love with my crazy.
