About 4 years ago, I was a mother of two under two and felt like I had completely lost part of myself.
I felt like my life purpose was now to only look after my babies but believed unconsciously that the less I did for myself the better mother I was.
HOW WRONG I WAS, THIS BELIEF COULD NOT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
The ONLY way to teach our kids to take care of themselves, is for them to see us doing it first.
My kids are both extremely stubborn (highly spirited – whatever you want to call it) and are very much DO WHAT I DO, NOT WHAT I SAY.
I now know that I need to take care of myself and my needs before anyone else. When my love cup is full, I am a better Mother, Wife, Daughter & Friend.
Today I rested on my bed while reading the Fourth Agreement (for the millionth time) and then went out and played in my garden.
What do you do to fill up your love cup?
