"It's incredible how nature sets females up to take care of people, and yet it is tricky for them to take care of themselves." -Bjork
There are several different ways of interpreting this statement but it made me think about my own life and my struggle to find joy in the fragilest moments of every day. There is this book called, And Then I'll Be Happy! (see this review on TwoDay magazine) and basically touches on how difficult it can be for some women to put their own needs first and that for many of us, we have been "programmed to be unhappy". Okay, so I think I have been doing alright trying to balance taking care of myself with taking care of my little charges (electric bolts of lightening those two boys are!) but some days I feel like a circus performer walking the high wire. My advice to other high wire acts...unravel that bad programming however you can, and make a safety net out of yourself.
