I was not feeling fulfilled with my life, until I made a small change that made all the difference.
I used to sing this song to my children, but tonight it was exactly what I needed to hear.
How the phrase, Motherhood is a Relationship, helped me find peace and contentment in my week.
There’s so much beauty all around us if we really stop and look for it.
For years I’ve wanted to have a healthy self imagine, to love myself for just being me. But for years what I thought of myself was mostly what I thought where else thought of me. This year I decided was the year I’d put the time and energy into learning who I am and why that’s enough. Here’s the first party of what I’ve learned so far.
An important stepping stone for my progress in self image and worth is questioning my thoughts that do not serve me. Here is my first lesson in that.
I take my body for granted so many times and treat it horribly in the meantime. Here’s what I really want to say to my beautiful breathing body!
Why is it I just feel bad that I keep eating treats!? Why does my brain choose to focus on the one aspect that I’m not doing particularly well at instead of all the good I’m doing!?
What a weird weird time to be alive right now, especially as a mom. How do I help my children feel safe and secure when there is so much unknown in the world. How can I, as a mom, help my children with their school work on top of the emotional concern on top of keeping up with the house work and all the meals!?
I wanted today to be spiritual and memorable and wonderful. I had all the good intentions. But reality showed tired parents needing naps and emotional children displacing that emotion on each other.
