New here and wondering what’s going on? Busy Mom VS Daily Grind is all about making the dedication to do something every day that will help you live a happier, more fulfilling life. I have committed to document my journey of developing the habits of living moment by moment, being grateful, and bringing self expression + creativity into every day.

It’s only day 4… and I am exhausted. Who knew all this mental fighting would be so tiring. It was a constant struggle to keep myself focused today.
I guess not getting enough sleep doesn’t help either. I finally got into bed at about 1am last night only to have the baby wake up at 1:30.
She took a good nap today though, and instead of getting creative, or doing much needed chores, or spending time with Josephine… I took a nap. A much needed nap. And an hour later, I enjoyed a little snuggle with Josephine when she came in to wake me up because she was bored. lol
It felt awesome to take a nap… I haven’t done that in weeks. But after getting up, I was back to struggling on keeping focused and enjoying the little moments. Its so hard to slow things down when everyone and everything around you is going by lightning fast. The day just flew by.
After putting the kids to bed, I felt like today was a complete failure. I didn’t even take a single photo. But I was determined not to give up on my effort to create daily, so I forced myself to sketch.
I was so not in the mood.
But I made myself do it.
And I am so glad that I did.
I guess sometimes you just have to sit down and “get to work”. Forcing yourself to create never feels good at first. But once you get into it… magical things can happen. :)
Good night all!
Don't miss a single, inspiring thing!

Thanks so much Babette! It is tough but (hopefully) it will get easier! lol
