I woke up this morning on the wrong side of the bed- hating my life, tired of the constant requests from the little people, tired of their messes, tired of breaking up their fights, tired of the constant correction. I just want a break. I want to finish a cup of coffee without having to fix a cup of chocolate milk.
I came across this video in my Facebook feed this morning. It took a few minutes to watch, but it completely altered my day.
I see the mountain of laundry, the dirty floors, the organizing and decluttering waiting to be done in a different light. Someday, I’ll have a clean and tidy house. I’ll have peace and quiet. I won’t have to worry about someone dumping cereal on the floor, changing outfits 4 times a day, or cutting my $50 curtains with scissors. I will finally have alone time with my husband.
I never thought I would dread that time so much.
