setting boundaries, home and work

dear world,

i read a post by be positive mom this morning about setting boundaries. she wrote, “the only boundaries set are the ones you create and keep.” i can’t think of a truer sentiment.

as i try to juggle work, two kids and finally scheduling time to go to the gym, i find that i have to draw the line somewhere. here are my lines that i try so hard to keep:

  1. no talking on the phone during dinner. seriously. it can wait.
  2. unless there is a situation at work, no work stuff between home from school and bedtime. after bedtime, go for it.

i think that’s about it. those are my boundaries that allow me to make space for my girls and catch up with my family at dinner. obviously things happen, but i have found that not having too many boundaries makes it a good deal simpler to stick to them.

keeping it real,

cm
