Because of Spring break I missed two of my scheduled runs. Worriedly I logged into my training schedule at myasics, and was relieved to read that my goal, to run the 10 kilometer in an hour was still attainable. It made me feel optimistic: apparently you cán be a slouch now and then without permanent damage to your goals.
And what goes for running, goes for motherhood. A bad day of motherhood, when the children are driving your crazy and you lose your temper, doesn't mean you've screwed them up for life. You can still attain that goal most moms strive for: happy and balanced children.
So give yourself a break when you're having a tough day.
Things that take a lifetime to create, can't be ruined by one bad day.
