Sometimes, all you need is a change of perspective to see things clear again. ⚘ Same kitchen, different view for you today. You know, this little square world of ours is so pretty and creative and perfect. Real life mostly is not. Real life comes with those 90 percent, you don't see on Instagram. The dirty mom shirts, the greasy hair, the unshaved legs, the screaming kids not to mention the self doubt and pressure we (moms) put on ourselves every day. It may sound strange, but when I feel overwhelmed and stressed out, cleaning really makes me focus. So does cooking and eating but today I cleaned the entire kitchen. Inside out. And what can I say, I feel so much better. Yes, I know, it's weird. But hey, that's me. Please tell me, I'm not the only weirdo here! Oh and let me tell you, feeling overwhelmed is pretty much something anyone is going through. Yes, even the moms behind the perfect Instagram grids. So don't be too hard on yourself. You're doing great! What are your strategies to calm a busy mind? // Was sind eure Strategien, wenn euch alles zu viel wird? Ich denke mal, die wenigsten sind so verrückt und putzen so wie ich, wenn sie gestresst sind oder?
