But here is the thing. You don’t need to do MORE & you don’t need to put yourself LAST to make things HAPPEN!
It’s so easy to believe that doing it all & more will make everyone happier, life easier and things moving quicker. And while taking action is an important part of creating a thriving environment for your family and yourself, it’s not everything!
I often crossed the line of putting just too much on my plate, just to realize that it weighed me down rather than lift me up. I know now that less is more. Being intentional and mindful of your time & energy is the key to having it all.
The Urban Dictionary describes a mom as someone who puts her children before herself and while I agree to the thought of doing what it takes for my child’s well-being, saying we moms need to put ourselves last, just doesn’t seem right to me!
It all starts with you! Your energy, your mood, your physical health, your mindset. If you are not at your best, how can you show up as the best mom to your children? Taking responsibility for your own well-being physically, mentally & spiritually will enable you to show up for your family, your dreams & goals every single day. You can only genuinely give from an overflow of love & support. It all starts with you!
And lastly, I know the need to make everything right from the outside, keeping it perfect & clean. The truth is, perfection doesn’t exist and trying to get things right before stepping into a life and person you want to be won’t do anything but waste your time & energy.
You don’t have to be perfect to be your best version, but you have to be willing to show up. Every single day.
