Motivational Monday #2

Being intentional and relishing the moment are states of mind we are embracing this Motivational Monday. As a parent with competing interests and concerns, it can be a ​​ challenge but we are doing it anyway. We are moms, we go through fire and water for our kids so challenging has nothing on us, right?

The quote for today’s Motivational Monday lets us know that thriving in the moment is a worthy exercise because it is beneficial for our mental health. So today we are motivating ourselves to throw away our regret for yesterday and our anxiety over tomorrow because regret and anxiety sap us of energy for the moment; energy we need to run, skip, hop, laugh, cry and enjoy our kids. Today is another opportunity to live a thankful life because our lives may not be perfect but they are filled with perfect moments. ​​ Today is another opportunity to pursue a healthy mental health by not being anxious over what we cannot control ie. tomorrow. Today is another opportunity to embrace this moment that life sees it fit to bless us with and do the best that we can!

Actionable Steps:

  • Unapologetically have a blast with the kids today. Do at least one thing that is tons of fun with the kids even if it's just hugging them tight or laughing together till you cry. Woohoo!

  • Unapologetically have a blast with yourself today. Do at least one thing that is tons of fun for you even if it is just to take a seat and put your feet up. Yay!

  • Hit repeat


What did you do for fun today? Let me know in the comments below. Until then,

Best Regards and talk to you soon!
