So, I’ve been really trying to focus a little bit on myself. I feel like I need to do better at making myself a priority. When I feel good about myself, I know it reflects in my days with the babes.
I’ve mentioned before the vitamins that I take have my daily intakes of fruits and veggies. I am so grateful that I found this product before I got pregnant. When I was getting sick everyday, I was getting nervous that I wasn’t getting the babies enough nutrients. I truly do feel it’s in part because of my Juice Plus that I was able to have such a long healthy pregnancy.
I can’t lie, there are days where I forget to take it and oh my do I notice! My energy levels are just not the same. That 2:00 wall that I hit every day, seems to be so much less noticeable when I remember to take my Juice Plus. That nightly workout that I’ve been trying to add in, seems a little more plausible when I remember to take it. My hair, my nails, my skin all just seems better whenever I remember!
I promise, this isn’t a sales pitch. This is just what I was sitting here thinking about after we put the babes to bed tonight. I also was thinking, why in the heck is it, that when I forget to do something it’s always something that helps me. Everything that I do, reflects in my kids. If I am doing something to better myself, I think my kids will eventually see that. That’s the kind of mom I want them watching. The kind that is motivated. The kind that is efficient and organized. The kind that has it all together.
I know that isn’t realistic but sometimes I feel that pressure. Pressure to be everything to everyone. Pressure that, really, I put on myself more than anyone else does. When I dreamed of being a mom, I knew I was going to give it everything I had. I knew that no matter what, I was going to be the best mom to my capabilities. I can’t say that having triplets effected that. What I can say, is it made me take a different approach.
They are my number one priority. I want to be everything to them. I start there. My husband gets my 110% as well, as often as I can. The person who gets the least amount of priority from me? Definitely myself. I’m not saying this as a complaint. I’m saying this as a fact.
On top of working on continuing to be the best mother that I know how to be, I want to be the best wife. I also want to be the best me. In order to be all of those things, I need to start with myself. When I’m in a good place, I truly feel that everyone else falls into order. It’s going to take the extra effort. Sometimes, when I’m completely exhausted, I’m going to have to get my butt up and do that workout. I even just feel better when my hair is done during the day.
The little things like that are going to get me to my goals. I needed a fifteen minute break tonight, in order to type out my thoughts and that’s what I’ve come up with. Not only do I need to make sure I have the extra energy for everyone else, I also need to apply those rules for myself!
Good thing I have those fruit and veggie super powers at my back! I’m going for my goals head on. Hopefully, this is the start of my focus. 🙂 Hopefully that was a little Monday Motivation for you! Happy Monday!
