I wish I were slim. But I crave chocolate and sweets and eat them irrationally and uncontrollably.
I love my kids to pieces. But often I’m not really present with them when I have the chance.
I want to do something different, more challenging, and more meaningful in my career. But I am incredibly comfortable with where I am and what I have.
I want to be fit and toned. But I fail to make fitness a priority.
I actually really enjoy managing our household: making sure there are groceries, planning the meals, sorting through all the stuff, keeping our lives organised. But I go a little crazy trying to balance it all with a full-time job. But I'd go crazy if that is all I had to do.
When I’m at work, I think about all the things I could be doing at home. When I’m at home, I’m often thinking about work.
I want my kids to participate in activities like swimming and dance and gymnastics and soccer… There are things I’d like to do more of too. But I dislike too much running around and there aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week, so we all do less than we'd like.
I'd like a simpler life, with more time for me and my husband and my children. But we have three young girls, two full-time jobs, two pets, one mortgage.
During the week, I look forward to the weekend. But by Sunday afternoon, I’m looking forward to going back to work.
I want my girls to grow up being confident and proud and to feel good about their appearance and abilities. But I’m not sure I feel this way myself.
I often feel inspired by motivational quotations and ideas. Yet I fail to follow through with the suggestions they make.
I think about doing things differently, making changes and challenging myself. But I continue to live with what I have and what I know because it's comfortable.
Maybe it's time to start doing things differently. But am I ready?
