Sometimes us mamis just need a break. A Mami’s Time Out if you will.
Even a short 5 minute break away from all the “noise” helps bring some focus back to deal with it all.
I suppose we all have different ways of getting those breaks, in order to keep our sanity and maintain some balance.
Maybe it’s because you can usually find someone who can relate. There’s just something about being able to connect with others who share some of the same interests, and who often can offer a piece of advice or just their experiences.
I also work full-time outside the house, so I get to engage in adult conversation on a daily basis. This is a definite plus of being a working mother. I hear from other moms that crave adult conversation after being home all day with the kids. This is another reason the mommy blogging community is so strong.
Maintaining some self balance is important, don’t you think?
How do you keep a sense of self?
I look forward to hear how you maintain balance for yourself in the comments below.
