How I Learned to Live in the Moment

First-born, Type-A personality. Work first, play later.

When you live your life this way, like I was, there is never any time for fun, because there is always work to be done.

I have come to realize throughout my life that I feel very stressed doing things I should be enjoying. Take college for example -- almost the whole time I was there, I wished I was home, but when college was done and I looked back on it, I realized how amazing it was.

Then, after my second child came along. OMG. The stress of taking care of two children compared to one was a huge jump for me. And this second-born child was not like me. She did not believe in work first, play later.

I learned one of my greatest life lessons changing her diaper. She was old enough to be playful and kept moving her bottom around so I couldn't change the diaper. She was being silly. She was playing. She thought it was funny to watch mommy struggle to change her diaper.

I was not amused. I was frustrated. I could not enjoy that moment while I was in it to see what she was teaching me. She was teaching me that work and play should go together. You can play while you work.

Sometimes I just get so caught up in getting things done and doing it right that the stress gets to me and I don't enjoy the ride.

I don't want to get to the end of my life and look back and wish I would have enjoyed it more. We only get one chance at this with the precious people around us.

So, with the help of my life coach over the years, I have learned to find more balance between work and play and to put the two together. I still get sucked into my old mentality of work first, play later, but I try every day to enjoy the current moment that I am experiencing.

I have learned that if I am not happy, I have the ability to choose again. Right there in that moment. I have developed a blueprint to happiness, and now I help other moms take control of their life so they can enjoy the ride, too.
