Being a mom isn’t easy, I mean have you read the book “go the *% #^ to sleep”-I sometimes mumble that to myself at night, ok every night. But it’s also the most amazing role I have in my life. 👩👦👦 .
When I became a single mom, this role became a lot harder. I was the one doing the nighttime and morning routine by myself, cleaning and taking them to appointments (and much more). Don’t get me wrong, they spend time with their dad and I do get some much needed breaks, but I do have them for a lot of the time and that makes it difficult to try and do it all. 🙇♀️ .
Like most moms out there, I put my kids first for a long time. Until I realized that by doing that and not taking care of myself, I actually wasn’t truly being the best mom I could be. 🤔 .
Taking care of my body and mind has not only helped my strength, endurance and energy, but also my ability to be the best mom I could be. 💪 .
I found time, yes 5am, for me and it is worth that hour of stupid alarm for so many reasons, but especially for my kids. ⏰ .
I know there are moms out there just like me, so this is for you-you can’t pour from an empty cup. Fill up your cup with whatever it is that makes you feel fulfilled. And if that means taking care of your body and health, I want you to know that we can do it together. 💕
