Today's topic is on simply #keepingitreal.
I wanted to show you what my "normal" life is like. My business life vs motherhood. While yes, we usually eat healthy (and at the table together), we take all those wonderful herbs & supplements I post about (if I can find or remember them), I get up early in the morning before my kids and do yoga... Alone.. In silence. I usually like to have a clean house (and kill myself trying to keep it clean), and I blog regularly for the love of my business (and most days it is extremely hard!! )... With 2 under 3 it's just not reality for me to have everything perfect and feel great.
And I'm trying to learn that it's OK
Right now I'm reading a couple books about keeping life simple. Being ok with "good enough". And being content!
To be clear, I do not have a problem with thinking I NEED to do it all and BE all to everyone and everything. But I actually enjoy it! However..... When I start getting stressed and distressed (meaning I no longer enjoy it and my priorities, aka my family, starts to suffer and pick up on the result of my overactive adrenals) it's time to take a step back and #keepitreal.
Maybe we'll forgo the "gourmet" meal tonight and have pancakes or leftovers, maybe I'll skip makeup today and make this a learning moment to show my kids about having a healthy self image and self esteem! Maybe I'll go to bed with my husband instead of staying up late cleaning the house - instead telling myself "the kitchen looks like it's flipped inside out but the rest of the house is picked up.. Good enough!"
How are you keeping it real (to keep a healthy mind body and spirit)? Stay confident! Confident in appearance, parenthood, friendship, service and rest.
