YOU!!! That’s right. YOU!
I know as a mom and wife I spend a lot of time worrying and taking care of my family. Sometimes I neglect taking care of myself. As my kids have grown and don’t need their mama as much as those baby stages required, I have had more time to work on myself. What I have learned is if I take some time to myself whether that is working out, reading a book, hanging with my girlfriends, having a date night, going for a massage – I am able to give more of myself to others if I have spent some time taking care of myself first.
Working on yourself can be personal growth, fitness growth, career growth, etc. Results will happen even if the daily changes you make are small. Working on yourself doesn’t always mean setting big goals or expecting big achievements. It’s about making small positive changes and consciously improving yourself every single day. They can be as simple as waking up each day and asking yourself, “How can I be better today? What’s one small thing I can do to bring me closer to fulfilling my dreams today?”
The best project you will ever work on is you!
I know our days as a working mom & wife can be crazy. Our jobs can be crazy. You may feel like you don’t have any time, but you need to make time. Your well-being depends on it. Whether it’s starting a new workout, eating better, reading a book, getting outside more, going for a run, taking dance lessons, going back to school, getting a massage, having more date nights, or just going to bed and getting some much needed rest — take some time for yourself.
I am currently under construction. Thank you for your patience.
Today is Sunday. You have a full day ahead. Carve out some time for yourself. You will still have plenty of time with your family, plenty of time to prepare for the week and plenty of time to catch up around the house. At the end of the day, you won’t regret it. You will feel refueled, happy and ready to tackle the week ahead.
Do something today your future self will thank you for.
