Ok so I’ve had this blog for ages now and I must say I’ve been completely crap at sticking to it. It’s like a vicious cycle with me. I say to myself I’ve got this and that creative project to work on, then I start doing housework or some crappy chore for the kids, then I put off what I’m supposed to have done, then before I know it I’m up past midnight completely shattered and trying to achieve the goal I’d set at the beginning of the day. This is a cycle I’ve been caught up in for so many years now. Actually, since I started having kids. I can’t completely blame it on motherhood, and of course my kids are a complete blessing. But I think so many of us mums do throw ourselves into motherhood, and we lose ourselves in the process without even realising.
Now we’re getting to the end of 2019, I’ve said no more excuses! Leaving the piles of dirty washing, unstacking the dishwasher and millions of other jobs I have on the daily, to spend a little time out of my day to do what I want to do, does not make me a bad mum or wife! It actually makes me a better more enriched individual. Less frustrated, and more productive and positive. Even if it’s something small every day that I do for myself, that I enjoy and love it makes me feel better about myself. It makes me feel like there’s life after the endless groundhog day of shitty housework, and the daily routine of the school run and shouting at the kids to “hurry up, we’re gonna be late.”
I’ve found recently that inspirational quotes and affirmations have really been helping me to set and achieve even my smallest goals. I thought I’d share a few with you.
What do you do to help keep you motivated? I’d love to hear your comments.
Keep smiling! xx
