I find it very easy to be kind to people, but I’m realizing that I also need to be kind to myself. I think as moms and women in general we can be extremely hard on ourselves for many different reasons. Sometimes I have to pause and remind myself of what I am juggling and why I sometimes feel overwhelmed! I work full time nights, have 3 children ages 6 and under, a husband, I participate in both womens ministry and music ministry with my church, run a blog and some what of a social life and yet I still find it inexcusable for not getting things done or hitting the mark for certain goals. The list of personal disapointment is never ending. I can’t keep dishes out of the sink, bathrooms clean, laundry folded and put away. I can’t get to the closests that need organizing, the pumpkins that have been at my front door since October. I can’s seem to shed the extra pounds I put on over the past few years no matter how hard I try. (this is a big one! lol) The list of where I am lacking can go on for ages, but I began to ask myself, what is important? I can’t take my perfect body, clean house and organized closest with me to heaven, but I can work on building quality family solid relationships and a pure heart before God.
The one thing I have resolved in my heart to do this year is to cancel negative words & thoughts about myself and replace them with thoughts of positivity and loving myself better by taking off the unnescessary pressure. What are some of your resolves and resolutions for this year!? I would love to hear! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog & remember to be kind to yourself. You are awesome!! xo
