Day 22: 31 Days of Life in the StepMom Trenches (Vlogtober)
Margin. It’s that cushion we build into our day and emotional well being that allows for unplanned events to not get the best of us. If you are like me, you have a to-do list a mile long and when extra stuff gets added on, you can get stressed.
I’ve learned that adding margin into your day and being solution focused not burden based goes a long way. In my vlog below, I share some of the things on my agenda today and some of the things that got added and how I handled it.
Takeaway: Do you find yourself getting stressed out alot? Do you think your family would rather have a relaxed wife, stepmom, mom and things left undone or someone who gets to check everything off but gets a little stressed in the process? Maybe you are one of those women who can do everything and be relaxed….. if so, share your secrets with us.
I’ll be blogging more on margin and how to add it to your life next month. With the holidays approaching, it is a blessing to all when we add margin into our life.
