As the year comes to a close and I look back on what I have learned this year the words that stand out to me most are - Self Love and Self Growth.
Self love is defined as a regard for ones own well-being and happiness.
It begins with a self growth mindset. Be the best version of yourself. Love who you are becoming.
Self growth is something you have to work on everyday.
Once you have children, your focus naturally becomes less about developing yourself and more about developing them... about putting them in soccer classes, art, ballet, etc. but why did YOUR growth suddenly stop?
As a mom, we are constantly worrying about and thinking for our children. We work so hard that we give away so much of ourselves. Our love, our time, our energy. Our children are such a gift and blessing to us.
But we need to remember that a good mom is one whose own bucket gets filled regularly too.
I learned that no one else’s love can satiate your soul more than you loving and appreciating yourself.
Spend some time each day with your own inner voice. What are you telling yourself?
I am strong. I am a good mom. I am adaptable.
Remind yourself of what YOU are good at. I learned to love ME this year and I am happy with who I am today. My 20’s were spent finding myself. My 30’s now, I know what I want out of life and I am very comfortable with me.
So my focus for 2020 will be on my own self growth, respecting myself and teaching my children more about their own self growth too. (Oh and shorter captions on Insta! 😂😂 )
What is your focus for 2020?
