Sometimes I wonder how some moms can keep up with all of the tasks at hand. I suppose I don’t really know if this type of mom exists, but I do know that some moms have their home in a bit more order than others. This is not to shame anyone at all.
I don’t think I or anyone else is better than any other mom. But, I do feel that having an organized home and life can help you to feel more in control, to feel more at peace, and to reduce the chaos or tension that you may feel. None of us are perfect and we all have room to grow. There is a fine balance between accepting yourself and working on self-improvement.
I would say that I am somewhere in the middle on the continuum of super clean and organized and extremely cluttered and messy. I have had to teach myself certain household management tasks since I’ve been an adult and especially since I’ve been a parent. It hasn’t been easy, but I do believe that learning good home organization habits is beneficial to how you feel, how you feel about your home, your life, your family, and yourself.
