Morning my lovelies,
I am waking up full of positivity and rest (thanks to baby NEARLY sleeping through – just one 4am feed then a lay in till 7.30!) so I wanted to start this weeks motivation with this little reminder for all you Mummies:
As I mentioned in yesterdays diary post we don’t remind ourselves enough that we’re good Mums. We beat ourselves up and feel guilt over all sorts of things when really we should recognise the good we are doing for our little ones.
This weekend I decided I wanted to focus entirely on family time. I was getting a bit stressed wondering when I’d blog and then I realised that I have always said I NEVER want the blog to be something that stresses me out! It’s my passion; my other baby. And it should never be a hindrance. So I took it upon myself to be entirely selfish, fit in blogging when I could in the evening on Sunday and spend the whole weekend seeing family, catching up on TV, and enjoying time with Josh! I even found time to sort out all his clothes in his room so his draws are no longer full of clothes that are far too small for him!!!
Now in doing that, being a bit selfish and doing exactly as I pleased, I am starting my week content. Josh has slept amazingly this weekend, he’s really happy and has finally fought off the bronchiolitis he had. I feel relaxed as I’m not starting the week with a million jobs to do around the house and have a clear mind with lots of blogging ideas for the week ahead and I can look forward to planning out visit back to my home town of Oxford this weekend.
Happy Mummy equals Happy Baby – this is something I’ve always vouched for. Seeing as I’ve been quite stressed of late, feeling anxious and a bit unmotivated, I needed to take the time over the weekend for me. It may be selfish, but it’s the best kind of selfish! Sometimes you have to put yourself first, think about you and what YOU would like to do. I know my lovely readers aren’t going to disown me if I post a day late (or at least I hope not) and I am so grateful for that and the fact that people are still reading!
So if you feel the need for a couple of days just for you, your family and friends, and to just do as you please, do it! Enjoy it. Let go of feelings of guilt or “I should be doing this”. Just enjoy the day; life is so short, it shouldn’t be wasted on days of guilt and stress.
And now I’m ready and raring to go for this week! Lets make it a good one<3
