Making Life Easier

Before I became a mom I always idolized the women who toted their kids around the city with ease. Dressed to the nines, always calm and really setting the bar high for mom’s everywhere. I always envisioned my life as a mom being something similar. Fast forward to the last 12 months of my life and ha, not even close. That vision was quickly foreshadowed by diapers, spit up, sleepless nights and lack of showers. Motherhood is very far from glamorous but something about that makes you feel invincible.

Becoming a mom has given my life so much purpose. I am more confident, more secure in the direction of my life, I am more content with work, I don’t feel the need for more and I’ve learned to let go of the things that I can’t control. I have found a new sense of happiness that I didn’t know was missing from my life. Some days are really hard but in those instances I’ve learned to take advantage of people and things that can help.

It is easy to sweat the small stuff or stress out about not having enough time to do it all but the past year has taught me a lot about the importance of making life easier on yourself.  Whether you’re a mom or not, I think that this concept is something everyone can benefit from. American Express has made our lives easier since becoming Card Members last year. We use our Blue Cash Everyday card daily, especially for our bi-weekly Amazon orders. We rely on Amazon for everything – paper towels, dog food, baby wipes, baby food, diapers, soap, garbage bags, sippy cups – the list goes on and on. It is very rare that I ever venture to the grocery store for packaged products because Amazon delivers everything right to our door.

American Express is running an amazing offer right now to make using your Blue Cash Everyday Card and shopping on Amazon even more rewarding. New Card Members will get 10% back on Amazon purchases within the first six months of membership, up to $200, whenever they use their Blue Cash Everyday Card. To qualify, sign up for Blue Cash Everyday between now and January 11,2017. With the holidays coming up it’s a great time to sign up for a card that rewards you for using it! Card members will also earn $100 in the form of statement credit after spending $1000 on the card within the first three months of membership. Time to get shopping for Christmas gifts!
