When Your Best is not a Good Look

"For the last few years, ever since I passed out from exhaustion, broke my cheekbone and got five stitches over my eye, I've been working on bringing more balance to my life. To do this, I’ve had to learn to unplug and recharge. To trade multi-tasking for uni-tasking -- and, occasionally -- no-tasking. It’s left me healthier, happier, and more able to try to make a positive difference in the world." Arriana Huffington

Perfect Parent asks:

Ummmmmmmm, Ariana were there any red flags before this moment that might have helped you avoid these injuries? Though all working moms have stories of sleep deprived fender benders Ariana (once again) has bested us all. May I suggest getting to the point of passing out and breaking something only if what you are engaged in is super important. If say, you are on the very brink of curing an infectious disease or carrying a high level message of national security. Halloween costumes, wedding receptions, spelling tests, college applications, blogging!! or engaging in punditry just don't warrant the kind of dedication necessary to pass out cold and break something on your face!

By all means make a positive difference in the world moms but before laying crumpled in your twin-set, eyes rolling and head leaking, get some shut-eye.
