I wear a lot of hats in my life
I’m a physician, a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter, and an individual
I want to succeed at all of these all the time
But that NEVER happens.
Every day I might feel like I succeed at one aspect but epically fail at all the others
So … Im just going to strive to succeed at TWO aspects of my life each day
And I know every day will be different.
Some days Im a good mom, a good physician but a crappy wife
Some days Im a good wife, good at self care but cant seem to pull off the “mom-thing”
Yesterday I went to the gym and had a great run … Self Care …. CHECK!
An afternoon date with my hubby …. Good Wife …. CHECK!
Ignored my kids while I had dinner with friends … Mom fail .. friend win!!
So .. I actually hit on THREE yesterday
Boy, am I an over achiever.
