Where there is no struggle – wise words Wednesday

This Wednesday’s wise words come from the legend that is Oprah Winfrey.

Where there is no struggle

This quote really rings very true for me. Having 3 kids is wonderful and I would not change it for the world but man it can also be hard work. When things go wrong they often snowball (since I’ve started my blog I’ve documented two of such Epic bad days). The early days with new born twins were relentless. There was a horrific day when we all had a nasty vomiting bug.

There are times when being a working mum has been tough – the horrible days getting up at 6.00am to head to the office when I’ve been up all night with a poorly or teething little one.

But…….I try and dig deep. I try to find an extra bit of energy. I try to find a way to hold it all together. I might need to wipe away the tears, it might take tea and emergency chocolate, I might need to take a deep breath and hide in the bathroom for a moment. But the bad days are the moments when I’ve found some strength that I didn’t know that I had.
