So the irony here is that I just lost the post that I spent the last 20 minutes writing, about being busy and overwhelmed but embracing it and finding calm in the small simple things that make me happy.However here is the more authentically written (and rushed version). It can be really stressful when you're split between being a mum, running a business and trying to be a good friend, partner and person to then try and cram in more things into your day for 'balance'.

This week I've tried yoga – where my 2 year old daughter wet herself in the creche and I was called out mid 'flow' and the teacher got all shitty about it (I also walked out before shavasana which is frankly the best bit - i.e. where you get to lie down for ten minutes).Not drinking - again more irony here as when I went out with my friend to the pub it was easier not to drink than at home with my husband with a bottle of red wine already cracked open.Going to bed earlier and not looking at my phone - big fat fail there too – especially when you run a business on Instagram! In short, I found trying to find ‘balance’ actually quite stressful.
However, I have found calm and peace in the tiny unexpected little seconds throughout the day - a cuddle from my kids, admiring the flowers I bought on a whim, enjoying the sun on my face, thinking how attractive my husband is when he does the washing up (our dishwasher has been broken for the past two weeks) etc etc. So this weekend – here’s to embracing the crazy full on pace of life as it is but enjoying the tiny moments – the ones you don’t even have to think about it. And that’s as zen as I think I can get.
