If you are trying to balance being a mom, a wife, working, and trying to have somewhat of a social life, it can be overwhelming. It may even be tempting to look at someone else’s life and wonder how they are balancing it all so well.

Today I had the honor of connecting with the host of the Mom to Wife Plus Life podcast, Jennifer Reed, to hear about her journey of “balancing it all’ while navigating the ups and downs of her and her husband’s mental health.

Jennifer generously shares with us her story of coming out of a domestic violent marriage, struggling with “mom guilt”, navigating her husband’s PTSD, and also feeling pressure to have everything figured out. She wants to encourage other moms and wives that sometimes “life is hard” and that’s okay!

In this episode we talk about why we don’t have to always “fix” what’s broken, learning how to disconnect and be present, the importance of self-care, and why you SHOULD be talking to yourself!

We hope this episode encourages you that you do not have to have it all figured out and that we are all in this together. Please connect with us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge, and let us know your thoughts. As always, together is better!
