The idea of a rule of three has hit me harder than I ever imagined now that I have 3 little ones at home. I am a full-time working mom of three little boys (ages 5, almost 4, and almost 1). I have a little side hustle slinging makeup. I am the loving and supportive wife of a badass military dude doing badass things that take him away from me pretty consistently inconsistent. I may not be a single mom (kudos to those who are!), but we have been through 3 combat deployments together and countless training exercises that leave me in the driver’s seat of parent/home management anywhere from 1-4 weeks per month lately. Lastly, I am a dreamer. I have goals I’ve set for myself for the year I would love to see to fruition!
Balancing my chaos has turned into the daily struggle of finding which 3 goals I can fit in my day. I #momsohard ALL the time, all while trying to balance out the other passions in my life, and not drown out the pieces that make me, The Kat.D.
I never imagined being a blogger, but why not? There are women who identify with me, right? Can I get a what what? Every day, I ask myself, ok Kat.D, what is going to be your act of #badassery? Will it be getting to work at the crack of dawn alongside my coworkers? Will it be driving through the gate while pumping with #noshameinmygame? Will it be making a homemade gourmet dinner for my children and have them gobble it up and ask for seconds? Will it be getting my heartrate up above 150 for at least 20 minutes of my life? Will it be giving a makeover to a woman to make her look and feel beautiful and amazing? I mean there’s just SO many choices…how can I ever choose ONLY three?!
As much as it pains me to admit this, I HAVE to accept the fact that I simply cannot do it all…not at once anyway. I will be grateful and gracious with whatever portions of life I can control at any given moment and above all hold myself to a kinder standard, because I am doing my absolute best!
So why am I here? Because I see you. I see you doing that #momlife thing. I see you doing that #girlpower thing. I see you doing you. Doing that juggle act that we all do. I’m doing it here too. *fistbump*
