One month down just eleven more to survive!
I can’t believe the first month of the year is already coming to an end. I feel like I should have done so much more. I don’t know about you but I know I am personally my own worst enemy. Like nothing I do is ever good enough for inner me. Didn’t write enough words a day, didn’t work out at all this month, ate like crap every weekend, didn’t do more fun things with the kids, yelled too much, lost my patience too much, it goes downhill pretty quick from there.
The inner bitch in my head is not very nice. But what would I tell someone else who was putting themselves down about the things they didn’t get done? I would say “Girl, shut the hell up and remember, YOU GOT THIS and look at what you did do.” Even if it was just four things you checked off, even if it was just one or none. Look at what you did, look at what you didn’t do and let’s try harder tomorrow. We might not have made January our bitch but hey we have got eleven months to try again.
Life is hard and every day so unpredictable let’s be nice to ourselves this year. Pat on the back for remembering the kid’s lunch, pat on the back for not hitting snooze a third time, pat on the back for taking a small step towards completing a goal or following a dream, pat on the back for just taking a deep breath, putting your feet up and being happy with yourself.
We’ve got a long and some days bumpy road ahead of us but we’ll get to where we are going one day at a time.
