WATCH: What if this week you created a to-don't-do list?
From carpooling and playdates to helping the kids with homework and putting together supper after a long day at work, the daily schedule of a mother is pretty jam-packed.
"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans," is a famous quote by writer and cartoonist Allen Saunders.
Made popular by John Lennon in the endearing song to his son, Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy), it perfectly sums up the day-to-day of motherhood, and immediately comes to mind when first watching this video by a UK spa brand.
It's gotten nearly 6 million Facebook views, and may have been written by a future Oscar-winning scriptwriter.
In it we see older women doling out the kind of knowledge they wish they could've had as young mothers, seemingly answering Oprah Winfrey’s classic interview question: What's the best advice you’ve ever been given?
The video serves as a great reminder that time is the one thing none of us can replace.
Watch the video below for inspiration on drafting your own to-don't-do list:
