You don’t hate to play.
You just forget how to be playful.
If you are at all like most women, you were raised and grew up believing that life is about getting things done and in motherhood that’s pretty much all there is time for — or so it seems.
And while you may want to be one of those moms who is super fun and enjoys life, you are often too exhausted and overwhelmed to relax, lighten up and be playful.
As a result, you may feel like you are living on the sidelines of your own life.
You are living, yes, but not fully enjoying life with your children and partner.
Don’t confuse going through the motions with being playfully present.
The truth is that it can be a challenge to move from adulting to playing with full abandon.
After all, you carry a big load of responsibilities, handle most of the emotional and mental labor of your family and, your own expectations on life zap you of energy to play and have fun.
All of that pressure to keep your life running smoothly leads to stress, distraction and overwhelm as well as feelings of not being good enough.
You long for a day when you can truly open up and be playfully present.
It’s time to change this story …
Right now, your story may sound something like this:
- I hate playing with my kids
- I don’t have time for playing
- I don’t know how to even play anymore
- Taking time for playing makes me feel like I’m wasting time
- I feel guilty that I don’t play more
- I am so tired of taking life too seriously
- I’m too distracted to play
- I should be more intentional about offering playful activities
- I dread it when my child asks me to play
It’s true you are not a child anymore.
