People often ask me “how do you do it all?” The truth is, I don’t. Dishes go unwashed, laundry piles up and our family eats dinner out at least once a week.
Life has been crazy lately. Working full time as a legal assistant, running my social media accounts, my blog, dealing with my health, and making time for my family is exhausting. Now add being 6 and a half months pregnant to the mix, you bet, I’m constantly apologizing for late night texts, running late and my forgetfulness.
Though, my “mother’s intuition” has never failed me.
Trying To Find Balance In My Everyday Life – Intuition Effect
I don’t think I will ever truly find “”balance”. Which is one of the first things, I highly suggest you accept as well. We can’t do it all. I’ve learned that quickly. Instead, learn to cut back.
Most recently, I reduced my hours at work. Not because I wanted too, but I had to listen to my body. Growing a human is tiring. I have to make sure that the baby inside of me is being taken care of and the body the baby is growing in, is also being loved.
Finding Happiness in Simple Pleasures
Seriously, I have so many things going on and I’m not complaining! I love my life and all the stuff that comes with it. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t find happiness in the simple pleasures. Especially ones that will make my everyday ‘routines” easier.
For example, ordering our groceries online or using my Schick Intuition Razors during my quick five minute mommy showers. Anything that helps amidst the chaos!

Store your razor facing up outside of the shower (it will increase the lifespan and also you do not have to worry about the kiddos getting into it!).
