Just Do It
“Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create”
As moms finding balance can feel nearly impossible. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, something new pops up (like puberty) and BAM, the balance goes out the window. Is there a way to weigh everything out in advance and achieve perfect balance? No, we wish there was, but the reality is shit comes up all the time and we have to recalibrate and even out the scale.
For us, creating Need Want Wear Share helped to achieve a new sense of purpose in our lives. Our goal is to help other moms take time for themselves, not lose themselves in motherhood and rediscover who they are at this stage of their life. If you find anyone that says they are the same person as they were before they had kids, we’d like to meet them and hear their secret! And p.s they are lying. Motherhood has peaks and valleys, first steps and poop explosions, warm snuggles and sleep deprivation - all of these things, change you. There’s no way that it doesn’t, and that’s ok! This new 2.0 version of yourself has a fuller heart and is even better despite the saggy boobs. The important thing is making yourself a priority. We know that’s easier said than done...enter Need Want Wear Share. We are not psychologists, or trained life coaches but we are real moms who have found a greater sense of self and have thus become better moms by finding this balance. We didn’t know it but we needed each other to do so and realized that other moms may also need an extra added push.
Here’s your push!!!! If you find that it's hard to set aside alone time, separate from your spouse, away from your kids, then you’ve come to the right place. While we are all spread out across the country and can’t physically be together we hope that our “grown up goody bag” serves as a reminder to give yourself that space. We encourage you to find local events to get you out of the house, meeting new people and focusing on yourself. We have created Cbusmamatribe in Columbus, OH where we curate monthly events to help facilitate the process and make it less daunting. We do all the research, scheduling, planning etc, so all you have to do is click on a link to sign up and show up. Maybe you could form your own local mamatribe and take turns organizing? Maybe you love hosting? Maybe you have a business that would be a great place to put on an event? Maybe none of these things ring true to you? We have found that it worked wonders for us, so instead of just thinking about getting together with friends, or trying a new workout, or sampling the new restaurant, like Nike says, Just Do It.
