Thanks Mama Simmons for this link. Check out Kristin Armstrong's blog on motivation today - it made me think, and feel like I am just in a phase where I am seeking balance. I used to be in autopilot - workout, go to work, come home, do work, go to bed. My life has changed (since adjusting to having a baby in the house) and I will get back to where I used to be - or not ? I will find happiness and balance however it should be. It's a great post!


  1. I love her posts! I always find inspiration from what she writes! If you don't usually follow it make sure you read back over them...there have been quite a few good ones over the past few months!

    Funny you mention the balance thing. I think it's something we will always have to fight. Especially when you're a stay at home mom. could say that it shouldn't be that difficult if you get up everyday at the same time. But we know that just won't happen every day. :-) Hardest part for me is getting in a routine/schedule and then having it changed as J has gotten older and his routine changes.

    I miss the daily routines from my Army days. Routines are good :-)!!!!!! And ya, guess that was pre-baby so it WAS easier :-)

  2. I don't have a child, but I know sort of what you feel like. I wasn't working for 6 months at one point and I felt so lost and off balance. It's hard going from a very regular routine to something so different. You may not end up with your schedule again, but you'll adjust to what life is now and you'll feel better.

  3. I always love Kristen Armstrong's stuff! I wish her articles would appear more regularly in RW.

  4. That post is great for some perspective... thanks for sharing.
