I’m going to let you in on a little secret 🤫
You cannot give 💯 % in every area of your life. Yup, you read that right! You cannot give 100% to mommin’, 100% to being a great wife, 100% to your job, etc... .
If you know me, I wear many hats: wife, mom, friend, mentor, teacher, coach, etc. but not everyday am I winning at all of them. Some days I rock as a teacher but have many mom fails! There are days when I am Killin it as a mom but loving on my hubby falls short. There are days when I’m checking in with all my girls but my house works falls to the wayside. .
So how do you choose what you’re going to rock at each day? Some days you can set your intentions and dedicate your time and energy to certain areas and other days life happens and you have to wing it. But on thing you can do is—>> Try and do better than you did the day before. Don’t get upset that you didn’t rock it as a mom today, just set some time aside tomorrow to dedicate just to your kids with no distractions. .
This past week I knew my intentions for the week and I stuck to them. I knew my main focus was homecoming and my own mental health. Did that mean that some areas of my life got pushed aside>>>YUP! Did I feel guilty>>> NOPE! Now that homecoming is over I can revisit those areas that may have been pushed to the side and spend a little more time on them then I did last week. I no longer sit in regret because I set my bar so high for myself that it was unreachable! I’m totally all for giving it 100%, but be clear in what you are giving 100% to. .
Know that your are only human—>> Not superwoman! You cannot do all things! Give yourself some grace, love yourself, and try better the next day ❤️❤️
