I’m Grounded with Pepperidge Farm

Today I’m letting you know it’s OK to take a break! It’s good for your soul! I’m sharing how I take a break with Pepperidge Farm® Milano®Cookies! I'm Grounded with Pepperidge Farm | TodaysCreativeblog.netIt seems like everyone I know is busier than ever, especially moms! We wear many hats, we want to wear all of them well and sometimes some of those hats are crazier than others.

It’s OK to take a break!

My hats of course are being a mom and wife, I wear those all the time. Then I have my blog hat and my “teaching classes” hat. My days are very full and pretty chopped up so I can wear all my hats all in the same day…. Seems like most my friends have a lot of the same hats I have and sometimes I’m convinced they wear their hats better than I wear mine and I’m sure they think my hats are better worn than theirs at times too. I'm Grounded with Pepperidge Farm |

It’s OK to take a break! 

One thing about being 50+, is that you really do start to relax a bit. You realize that you can’t do it all, and that’s OK.  You stop judging yourself 80% of the time! You realize that life is messy…….for everyone. No one has perfect hair, skin, clothes or body all the time, let alone the perfectly spotless home (expect for my mother in-law). No one has all the answers, as much as it may look like they do.

Comparison is the Thief of Joy

I remember when I was a new mom and felt completely out of sync. I was 37, and all the other moms I would see, seemed to do it with ease. Then one day in a crowded mall parking lot, I walked my stroller past a new mom and she tearfully asked me if I knew how to get her stroller open. First I was shocked that anyone would think I looked like I could do anything motherly related, and as I opened her stroller like a champ, I realized we ALL have a learning curve, some curves are just sharper than others. I could have kissed her right then for giving me such a simple, yet meaningful gift. I'm Grounded with Pepperidge Farm | Because most of my day is spent in my office or my craft space, I can often get so absorbed, I forget to take a break. It’s good to take a moment, slow down, reflect on what’s important and let the rest go. My simple way is having a cup of Chai Tea with a couple of Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies. Just like that, I feel spoiled, focused and grounded.
