I can't emphasize enough how important it is to really know what your body and mind are trying to tell you. We're all here for our own individual purpose, and if you don't listen to it and only treat these signs as symptoms of a disease that you treat purely through external remedies, you'll have lost yourself in the process.
Don't those pictures drive you nuts? You know the ones. You see them in the movies, on social media, in advertisements: Photographs of families who seem perfectly put together, never a hair out of place.But those of us in the trenches know what parenting looks like in reality. You're running around getting the kids ready for school in the morning. You're lucky if you can change out of your pajamas before dropping your son off at 2nd grade and taking your two younger ones to swim lessons. Coffee is a food group, and your one magical wish is that the sink full of dirty dishes will somehow disappear by the time you get home.
