When making healthy lifestyle changes, most people only consider what foods they should and shouldn’t be eating…

Hello December! Since December is my wedding anniversary month, I thought I would start the month by talking about love. This year my husband and I will have been married 7 years and together for many years long before that. While marriage, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful expressions of love, the other being motherhood, it is not without difficulty. I think we get so caught up in the fairytale of love sometimes, we forget that it takes work to make love work.
Recently, I was really excited about Monday. I went to bed early the night before, so I could get up early, got dressed, put makeup on, wore something other than yoga pants and a tank top, and actually got my son to school on time. I came home, mediated, and had coffee in my favorite mug on the back patio before I got to work. The day started off perfectly, and once it started, it didn’t stop. That Monday was literally the busiest Monday I have had in a very long time. I couldn’t believe the calls, packages I needed to sign for, papers I needed to file, and meeting after meeting. It was a lot. And even with all that, it was still a great Monday.
I recently listened to a livestream where Lakeisha Michelle spoke and she used the words “rescue your future.” This really stuck out to me and I thought it was a super powerful statement.
I like the urgency it conveyed. So often, we are too passive about our desires and goals. We complain about our spouses, but don’t take a look at our own behavior to see how we might be contributing to the problem. We complain about our jobs, but don’t make the effort to find a job we do enjoy. We complain about our weight, but eat doughnuts and french fries…
Have you ever bragged about multitasking? My husband does that on the regular. He’s always reminding me of how well he multitasks and that I should multitask more. Is that right? Should working moms be masters at multitasking? The short answer is NO!
Have you ever heard that saying, “The journey should feel like the destination.”? It’s this idea that the steps you take along the way to your goals should feel create the same feelings as achieving the goal itself. Because it’s a “feeling “we’re chasing, not so much a “goal”.
People often ask me how I get it all done. To be honest, sometimes I used to surprise myself. It’s not a really surprise anymore though because I have a system in place for how I make decisions and how I execute on those decisions. Now don’t get me wrong, it took a minute to get there. I tried planner after planner, app after app, and book after book. I kept buying more tools and online programs to help me “figure it all out”…
Happy New Year! Are you ready for your best year? Seriously, if you do the work, you can make room for an amazing 2018. And speaking of work, let’s wrap up the work we started in our blog series last month. In the first post of the series, we talked about how we say yes too often which leads to overwhelm. In the second post of the series we assessed what we have said yes to across the main categories of our lives and eliminated those tasks that weren’t part of our most important categories.
Having a child was hard for me. Getting pregnant came easy, but the actually delivery not so much. So after losing 3 children I finally conceived my son. And let me tell you, I don’t want to miss a thing in his life. But let’s face it, I do sometimes. Sometimes I’m traveling for work and I can’t be there to put him to sleep or take him to the park. Sometimes I’m working in my nonprofit or speaking to a group of women and I miss his swim classes and his first ferris wheel ride. Am I less of a mom? Is being a mother not my most important role?
Seems like a weird question to ask right? Who would enjoy being a workaholic mom? If you think about it though, either we continue to work all the time because we enjoy it or we’re insane. Isn’t the definition of insanity to repeatedly do the same thing over again and expect a different result?
