As I’ve grown in years, knowledge and wisdom, I’ve come to realize I am not superwoman. I cannot do it all. I cannot have it all.
Life has taught me to take things one day at a time; to slow down and embrace the moment; to be present.
Being a wife, mother of four and business owner, I can’t tell you how often I feel like a clown at the circus. I have to juggle daily.
I love my life, but there are days when I’m screaming, “Wait! Slow Down! Stop!”
It’s in that very moment I realize I’m not superwoman. I’ve taken on too much.
In my last blog I shared the journey of my daughter receiving a kidney. She was blessed to have her twin brother donate his. Little did I know what a challenge it would be physically, mentally and financially for my family.
This life journey has taught all of us to slow down. It forced us to be patient with one another. It made me ask for help (something I rarely do).
I can’t tell you how elated I am that my daughter now has a better quality of life. More so, I’m thankful for the life lesson that came from her surgery.
As women, we sometimes think and believe we can do and have it all. It’s the biggest lie we tell ourselves. And then we wonder why we’re burned out.
Not being superwoman does not mean we’re not superior in certain areas of our lives. Some of us are super moms; super businesswomen; super teachers; super caretakers; super friends.
Once we know the gift we’ve been given we can begin to do and be the best at our calling. We can stop trying to juggle it all.
As I approach the next chapter in my life, I’m so excited to have learned this lesson. I’m not superwoman. And guess what? It’s okay. I don’t have to be.
