my inspirational thought for the day.

Friday, February 20, 2009

today i thought ok, so life is not easy and i need to accept the things that god has given me. So i have been going through my thoughts and things and remembering what it was that was so special about that certain episode or memory if that is what you want to call it. then it hit me. every memory i had included my family. every thought, wish, dream, and goal I could think of was either about or in some way related to my husband and kids, but yet they were never solely about me. What i wanted or needed. So i guess to the point. this reminising has brought me to the conclusion that i need to learn a few things about myself. I am inspiring my self to learn what it is that i really want in life. Not just for me but for my family as well. But as they say.
"you cannot truly love those around you until you can truly love yourself."
that is one of my new life goals. to love myself and all my flaws.

    Good for you! I think as a mom, this is hard to do. Once the kids come, we naturually put oursevles second. I know I constantly struggle with mommy-guilt when I go to the gym or start a workout at home before the girls go to bed. I have now come to realize that I do need to put myself first if I want to become the mom I really want to be.

    Yayyy! I'm glad you're taking the time to "do you". If you dont take care of yourself, you wont be around to take care of everyone else. It's okay to get "self"ish every now and then. You deserve some time for you, and definitely have the right to make YOU happy too!

Good luck on this journey, and I hope that you gain knowledge about yourself, and lose weight while doing it!
