“We can’t do it all, but we can make our own beautiful memories.” - Jessica Smartt Memory Making Mom
"Can't" is a word I take issue with. In fact, we are not allowed to use the word "can't" in our house, because as soon as you tell yourself you can't do something, then you stop trying to figure out a way to do. You put boundaries up for yourself. Instead we say "I don't know how to...yet!"
But in this case, "can't" is warranted!
No one out there can do it all, including you, Mama! Although social media may portray it differently, it simply is not possible and if you've tried to do it all before you know the feelings that come from it - exhaustion, defeat, overwhelm and the feeling of being not enough.
While you can't do it all... you CAN make beautiful memories!
As we get into this holiday season there are so many events, parties and activities. You don't have to do them all to make the holidays special!
Today pick 1 thing you want to do to make a beautiful memory this holiday season and 1 thing you don't want to do. Focus your energy on the one you want to make a memory with and let the other go, or delegate.
