I am often asked “How do you do it all?” and my answer, after I fall apart laughing, is “I don’t!”
When it comes to those little people who live in my house, I just do my best. Some days are prettier than others, most days are really, really messy, and all days I make mistakes. I also have plenty of wins, and that’s what I strive for more of with my kids. It’s not perfect though, I promise.
For most Pilates instructors we give 100% of ourselves at work and that often leaves us with very little energy at the end of the day for the people who need us most. We’ve used up all of our happiness and patience at the studio, and we’re left feeling exhausted and crabby.
Like so many of my posts I’m not here to give you an answer for how to fix anything. I just want to assure you that you’re not alone, and hopefully that will help you not be so hard on yourself.
