Ok, so as many of you know I’m a Mother of 5 and if you don’t know now you know lol Well that takes a lot I will say first hand. In this world we live in today you want your children to know who they are as individuals, to have goals and to actually achieve them; but society makes that so very hard. I sat over the weekend watching them play, each individual mind going and so much personality in each one of them and I’m like Lord God, how do I pour into them when I’m struggling to pour into myself?
This morning God spoke to me through message and that message was, “How can you give them something that you don’t have?” Ha! It’s like I get so caught up in doing, running and giving that I forget that I have to be replenished in order to give to them. Being replenished isn’t something that just happens from sitting still. I have to constantly be in touch with my personal needs as well as being aware of my wellness holistically.
I can’t possibly give my children what I don’t have stored up to give. So here are a few things that I will begin practicing to get my wellbeing intact for their sake!
1) Morning meditation (prayer/saying my I Am’s and mentally setting my day of happiness)
3) Keeping up with doctor’s visits and exams (Both medical and dental)
4) Making to do list and not to do list (And actually checking them off as I accomplish each one)
5) Reminding myself of my purpose and being purposeful in everything I do
*Remember, you have to be good in order for them to be good! And that’s the #MomLyfe #LyfechatBlog
