IT's OK - Becky Pink's Story

I’m taking part in the @smith_webb and @mindcharity campaign to remind you (and myself!) that #itsok not to be OK - we all need help every now and then. 
I’ve had that horrible tight, anxious feeling in my chest for the last few months, whenever I think about my monstrous to do list. Then I sort of get paralysed and can’t do any of it. Can you identify? 

I became self employed as a freelance copywriter 3 and a half years ago to be able to spend more time with the girls. Slowly but surely I’ve been filling that time with the odd extra client here and there as I don’t want to let them down, until I’m back working the equivalent of 4 days a week anyway, plus all the blogging stuff in my ‘spare time’. So the work/life balance is definitely off kilter again. I feel like I’m not being the Mum I want to be and I feel like my creative spark is dwindling 😞 


Do you feel like we put too much pressure on ourselves to be perfect? I definitely do (I am a perfectionist after all) but I’m finding it impossible to keep all the plates spinning. Life admin alone is a bit of a daunting task right now! Swipe to see our living room right now in all its unedited non insta-worthy glory. The other end of the room is covered in washing. Literally covered 😂 I don’t know what the answer is but maybe I need to stop comparing myself to strangers on the internet who seem to have it all worked out 💁🏻‍♀️


Well that was quite a long post for a Monday morning but I feel a bit better to have got it off my chest! I hope if you are struggling with the #overwhelm or feeling guilty about not being the perfect mum/wife/entrepreneur/friend/daughter or whatever else is slipping at the moment you know #itsoknottobeok and you need to give yourself a break, you’re doing brilliantly. 💗💗💗
