Let's face it. Being a mom is hard and tiring. But also such a blessing and so rewarding.
As of right now I am in a season of being tired, sleepless nights, 2 year old (need I say more? :) ), the stress of moving, yard work, house renos, and keeping up with house work ect.
Lets just say life is busy right now! There are a lot of things I have been learning in this season of life. There are many mornings when all I want to do is stay in bed all day and not get up, but being a mom of 2 young kids, they get to tell you when you do and don't get to sleep :)
Getting out of bed with a good attitude is a HUGE game changer to my day, no matter how tired I feel, I try my hardest to get up thankful and find the joy in the moments when I am not feeling it.
I find if I start my day of grumpy dragging myself out of bed it carries on throughout the day, but if I choose to have a good attitude, get outside, listen to music, dance around the house it is amazing how much better my day goes!
Take everyday, every moment like it could be the last. Life is unpredictable. You never know what life will through your way. Be thankful for where you are, those sleepless nights, toddler's freak outs, messy house, loads of laundry....they will not last forever.
Switch your mind frame and focus on the positive.
Sleepless nights means you have a baby to love, its a blessing.
Toddler freak outs, it builds charter in you and teaches you patients, its only a small part of there life, it's a blessing
Messy house, you have a house. That is a blessing.
I don't want to look back and have "I wish I would have's"
Embrace where you are.
Find the joy.
No matter where you are, there is a blessing in everything even when it may be hard to see at the moment.
Yes I have bad days, days where I am grumpy, get upset with my kids...I am not perfect (sadly :) ).
But I am learning. Everyday. I am learning to choose JOY and see the BLESSING.
It also helps when you have such cute kids.... :) :)
