So I’ve been wondering what women who are stay at home mothers go through. I have seen various types and I’ve realised that different people yield different results.
It’s not easy to be a stay at home mum, you take the kids to school in the morning, have the afternoon to clean and cook if you do so everyday, then back to pick them up at 3.15pm. Then back home to take off your uniform, wash your hands, don’t do this don’t do that.
Mine are about to start that life in the next 7 months and am freaking out. I am also in full time employment and work for myself.
I have never had the pleasure in staying at home for no more than 2 weeks. I go back to work after 2 weeks of giving birth, (not healthy I promise you).
Anyone wants to share their experience with me on staying at home and how do you remain sane and have a purpose. Please comment below.
One thing that worries to me, is how do you still a Have a Purpose?
I know a lady who staying at home was her biggest nightmare. She ran out of money by 6 months, when she asks hubby for money, he doesn’t understand why she’ll need it. She still needed to look after her self.
Things like going to the salon, new cloths for occasions and a little treat here and there.
At a point she felt she had no other purpose in life that to be a mother to those 3 children.
Some will say that should satisfy her. But is that all a stay at home mothers purpose should be.
I know some who tapped into their inner skills or learnt new skills while mothering. Thus still gave them a purpose in life and as a person.
Doing things like baking, make up, designing etc.
I believe there is always a need to satisfy your personal needs at every stage in life. It will keep you sane and I believe it will make you know you have a purpose in life other than what you already have to do in your daily life (like working, being a wife, and mothering).
Job was encouraged about his purpose knowing Gods plan never fails…
Job 42:2, “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted”.
If you don’t have a purpose in life, start looking for it. It will satisfy you!
I really would love to hear what you or someone you know did in that time.
