Urgency versus what’s really important in motherhood

What this episode is about

There is a whole lot of urgency in motherhood and often times we confuse it with what's important. We spend most of our time doing all of the urgent things – laundry, dishes, toys, messes and it takes up all of the time for the things that are important like being present with your children, creating a home that makes your kids feel welcome and celebrated, or being able to have a life outside of being a mom.

When we are surrounded by clutter, everything feels urgent. This makes it hard to know what is really IMPORTANT.

And when it is important, the urgent things often trump what's important. At least for me. Maybe you can related to this scenario..

My toddler is asking me to play, and that is important. Then I see that all the toy bins are dumped out and it feels URGENT to clean those up before we play.
Cleaning up feels urgent because I am overwhelmed, frustrated or anxious. Playing with my toddler feels important because I want to be present with her.
And this is cycle I used to get stuck in all the time.

In today's episode we talk about the difference between the two and how to recognize urgent things you can eliminate in order to make room for the important things.
