We’ve all seen her. The mom who would do anything for her family. The mom who would give her everything to help her family be the happiest and healthiest they can be. The mom who is giving her everything for that goal.
Literally, she is giving it all.
And leaving nothing for herself.She’s the mom who is packing lunches, making homemade baby food, spending time meal planning and making healthy snacks for her kids, but skipping her own breakfast.
She’s the mom who is running her kids from activity to activity, but missing her own workouts because there just isn’t time.
She’s the mom who is scrambling to keep the house clean, get the laundry done, and keep the house in order, but never asks for help so she can have a little time for herself.She’s the mom who helps her kids with their homework, arranges tutoring when they need extra support, makes sure they are studying for their tests, yet can’t remember the last time she read something to improve her mind.
She’s the mom who makes sure her kids have clean clothes, are well-dressed, have combed and styled hair, yet is sporting a pony tail and sweat pants for the fourth day in a row.
She’s the mom who wants the best for her family, and does so much for them, that she forgets about herself.
Her family is her joy, yet you can see it in her eyes.
She’s tired. She’s on the edge. Her skin, hair, body, and voice all tell the story.
Her health and well-being are suffering.
She knows something needs to change, but she doesn’t know how to get off the hamster wheel. How can she sacrifice all she does…for herself?
Is this you?
I’m here to tell you that your health is important. Yes, YOUR HEALTH.
I get it. You want your family to be healthy and happy and your home to run well. You feel like it’s selfish to do anything for yourself, and you don’t have time to focus on things like your physical and mental health.
But remember this. When you focus on your own health, you ARE helping your family. A vibrant, healthy, happy mom is the best gift you can give your family. That’s pretty much the opposite of selfish.
You can get there. Start small, but start. Start today. Focus on YOU.
