I am almost embarrassed to admit it – I have thought of running away before. I say “almost” embarrassed, because more than likely you have had those same thoughts.

Sometimes the daily assault on self is more than we can handle as moms. Being responsible for and constantly caring for our children can cause us to just want to escape and care for ourselves. Yes, I have had those fleeting thoughts. But then again anytime I constantly think of myself I can have some pretty rediculous self focused notions.

I am so weary, so tired, frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed out, put out, worn out – I can’t take this anymore! How many times a week have I uttered those thoughts?

I hope you will join me over at MomLife Today where I give you some helpful hints on how to change your attitude and live with joy!
