Normalize “Not Getting Anything Done”

Stay at Home Mom

Today I want to talk about the difference between “seen” and “unseen” work. This is such an important topic and it is so close to my heart. As a stay at home mom, or a work from home mom, there are so many times when I get to the end of the day and I look around and it appears that nothing has gotten done. I cannot tell you how much that hurts my heart when I am not mindful about the reality of it. In those moments I feel like a failure. I feel like I have failed my children, my husband, myself, and my home. It is a devastating and worthless feeling. Only recently have I really begun to address that. I understand now that so much of the work that I do is simply invisible. It is incredibly important work. It is work that my home and my family would not survive without. Just because you cannot see something, does not devalue how incredibly important it is.

I hope that this post resonates with you. Feel free to share it with someone who may need to hear it. xo
