It wasn’t that long ago that I felt this way too. Juggling an extremely busy calendar and an even busier family life, I was trying desperately to balance everything vying for my attention.

Finding it hard to cope with all the different schedules, I felt totally frustrated that I never had time for my boys and husband, let alone myself. I hated that I was spending so much time doing all the housework instead of doing the things I loved.

Life was stressful and nowhere near as enjoyable as I wanted it to be.

Overwhelmed by my never-ending to-do list and bummed by how often I found myself saying “not right now” to my youngest, I decided that things had to change. There HAD to be an easier way to do this mum thing!


And then, in April of 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A diagnosis totally out of the blue, it completely pulled the rug out from underneath my feet and turned my world upside down. Three years on, I’m thankful to say that I made it through to the other side but my fight taught me something.

It taught me that life is precious and that it goes WAY too fast. It made me see that nothing matters more than spending quality time with the ones we love. That being rich isn’t about how much money we have in the bank. That happiness is a choice and that it’s okay to let go of the things that are weighing us down.

During my treatment I made a promise to myself. I promised that if I won my fight I would do whatever I could to make family life LESS stressful and MORE enjoyable. And that I would help others to do the same.

And now in this book, I’m sharing with you the EXACT steps I took to do exactly that. I’m sharing how I’ve reduced the overwhelm, taken back control and made life easier to manage so that you can do it too!
