Motherhood is joy beyond measure, but holy crap is life different!
As I’m learning to navigate this new phase of life, there are times when I wonder where I am, who I have become, and have I lost myself in the process of becoming a mother?
In the midst of all this questioning and changing, who knew Chuck Norris would have the insight I needed?!?
It all started when we picked up his book “The Secret Power Within: Zen Solutions to Real Problems” at a used book sale. I intended to give it to a friend as a gift, but one night when I was up late nursing I decided to glance through it. That’s when I found this quote:
“Handle everything with a disposition open to chance or change.”
And that’s my life in a nutshell right now:
I thought I was going to wear this cute shirt,
but now there’s pee on it.
I was going to run a quick errand,
but I’m still in my pjs.
I was leaving early,
but there was a diaper explosion.
Handle everything with a disposition open to chance or change…because children are improv artists and laughing is the only way to keep your sanity!
Thank you Chuck Norris for the unexpected insight into handling life…you are a badass!
If you want to check it out for yourself, I found some copies on amazon here.
Or let me know and I’ll lend you my copy!
