Good morning, Mommy! Happy Friday! Protect your pie today, right? Take care that you are a good employee, that you do your job, but also take care that you come into the weekend with some energy left for yourself and for that family that you love.
By the end of last week, I was a crying pile on the floor. I had given away all my energy-pie for that day, the next day and for Saturday apparently because I slept half the day away. Not good. Not who I want to be.
This week, I ate healthy even when I didn’t want to (which was always), I worked out every day even when I didn’t want to (which was always), and funny thing, here I am at Friday and I have energy left! Healthy living creates energy.
I set up a date night for Saturday. Laughed with a girlfriend till my face hurt (it had to do with a text that was suppose to include the word ‘computers’ but instead said ‘condoms’ … hilarious, I love autocorrect. Love and laughter create energy.
Requested car pools to save some time and energy. Let kids have cereal for breakfast every morning. Passed on two non-essential business dinners.
How about you, Mamma? How’s your pie this Friday morning? How’s your energy?
What do you want your life to look like this weekend? What do you have to put in place to get there?
See it, Mamma. See what you value and what you need and make sure to make time for those.
No apologies, no guilt. This is your one life. Live it well.
