That is a goal of mine, to have my children be proud of me.
I heard something the other day that was a hard pill to swallow. We, as Christian women and God fearing moms, have never been promised "times to myself". There is no me time, no wonder I can't seem to find it. It is depressing to constant try to achieve something that is mythical. I have set up my life around my husband and our children. There are many, many out there and in SP that will disagree with me....
Self control. In every aspect of life, finances, love, parenting, diet, lifestyle..... I do this for the glory of the One who allows me to live a life with my family. I have to choose to do it abundantly.
My time needs to be scheduled in such way to incorporate God's time, some quiet alone time with him. Me time.. Not really, but it is something that I will greatly appreciate and will allow me calm time. I may not be doing what I want to do those moments of the day, but as
the day goes along, I will be rewarded. I have a fitness regime, that I have made up myself
over the last few days, that fits my schedule, incorporates my children. Will it be a some fat
blasting, skinny girl routine, not all the time. But it is the beginning. As they see the
difference in me, more time will be allotted, because they will see the change in me. I do
this for them. For endless playdates this summer, for hours of gardening, for jumping on the
trampoline with them.
Change is slow process, for everyone. And realizing that me time doesn't exist in this plane... Is a large weight lifted off my shoulders.
