I’m sure you’ve heard these common phrases, “HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE” & “If Mama ain’t happy, nobody’s happy.” But I’ve been thinking about why such phrases irk me a bit and really seem like a myth. And in all honesty, downright selfish.
I’m as guilty as the next wife/mama in times past making everyone in my house bow to MY MOOD, but is it really fair? Should we as wives and mamas hold our families hostage to our ups and downs, our moods, our PMS, our MENOPAUSE, our tiredness, our busyness, our caffeine withdrawals, and our hangry afternoons?
There’s got to be a better way, right?
I’m so glad you asked because, THERE DEFINITELY IS!
Now, we women have some needs just like anyone else, but we don’t get to lord it over everyone in our lives. And I know first hand, as I’m sure you do, too, the guilt that it generates that WE then have to feel in OUR bodies. Sure, your spouse and kids feel the fright when you’re on a rampage, yelling at everyone because you just want them to PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER THEMSELVES, but YOU are the unfortunate one who has to FEEL all the junk it brings in your OWN body afterwards. THE GUILT and SHAME and BLECH of it. Because deep down you LOVE those little and big people to PIECES and you know full well how fleeting the years with them are and you want to just simply ENJOY THEM!
What if I told you that it’s possible to feel PEACE and CALM inside and not one single thing or person around you has to change? What if I told you that although life will keep happening every single day and the people around you are still gonna “people” that you can be FREE of the bondage to your emotions?
