I am not superwoman

I cannot do everything.  This is not news to me or anyone else.  So why have I been running myself ragged trying to do everything and beating myself up for the things I couldn't do?  I know I cannot do it all, I just haven't accepted it yet.  Knowing and accepting are completely related, yet completely different. 
Just knowing that I can't do everything by myself means I keep trying to do more than I'm capable of doing without stopping to draw the line when too much is too much.  Accepting that I can't do everything means knowing with absolute certainty where that line is.  Knowing and accepting that that line moves depending on how I feel physically and how my husband and children feel.  And boy oh boy, do I need help!  Acceptance is where I admit that I need help and actually seek it out.
