I love the way Julie Powell started her blog so I’m gonna try to copy her… I’m just going to jump right into the narrative. All you need to know about me will be revealed in time….)
First, let me just welcome you to my life
I’m not afraid to admit, a few months ago, I was a #hotmess. Before I started slowing down, I was multitasking to the point that I was double-scheduling myself for things repeatedly. I’m a stay-at-home-mom. I have a lot of free hours in the day in which to schedule things! But here I was, finding myself week-after-week, having to call someone and say, “I messed up, can we change that thing?” I felt, among many other things, like a total failure and pretty stupid. It had to stop. I couldn’t keep going the way I was because I was going to go crazy. If that’s how you feel too, you’re in the right place.
It’s time for a change.
My plan of execution is very simple: a combination of mindfulness, (light) exercise, meditation, 28-day goals, habit tracking and a potpourri of other things, too! This isn’t a paleo-diet, train for a marathon, give up your possessions and become a minimalist type of blog. That’s not what we need.
We need MOM Improvement!
That’s where the title of my blog comes in! To get back to the life we want to live, we have to start at the very beginning. We’re going to make Mom Improvements: to improve as moms, we need to rebuild and re-structure the way we live our days. “MOM”, in the business world, means “month-over-month” growth. That’s apt for us as well! We’ll tackle 1 to 2 habits each month, and track our growth!
Let’s create our best days, so we can be better, happier moms!
This is not about packing more and more things into our lives. We’re not adding to the already overwhelming To Do List. Just the opposite- we’re going to subtract things. We will do less each day. But we are going to focus more; have more positivity, more intention. We’re going to ask ourselves what we really want, what really brings meaning, and what are our true priorities. I’ll be offering a neat freebie in my next post to help get us started.
Ready to go?
It’ll be a long path, but I’m so excited to share this process with you! I know you’ll be able to do it, too. So, if you’re feeling like life has spun out of your control, like it’s just not going to ever stop being complete chaos… or worse, if you’re just not feeling like yourself and you don’t know when you lost you… I’m here for you. I lost myself, too. The awesome news is: a happier, more content, less messy, more confident and less stressed version of us is just waiting to be found. Let’s go find our best life together!
