New year, new me...
How many of us have said that before? I know I have. I'm not really focusing on that this year. I am going to change my way of thinking. I don't want to be a "new me". I want to be a healthier me. An improved me. And the way I plan on doing that is with baby steps.
Eat a little less, work out a little more. Enjoy my fruits and veggies a little more, pasta a little less. It's balance is it not? I'm not going to stress and freak out about my stomach or my eating or my exercising. But I am promising myself that I am going to start looking out for myself. Some one asked me the other day when I was going to upgrade my cell phone. Little thing I know. I just got my daughter a new one and my husband a new one last month. I said that I would think about myself after everyone else had been taken care of. Hmmmm. Will I ever think about myself then? No. I wont.
So I have promised myself that I will do something for myself for a change. Be a little selfish. But in the end we all win. I will be happier, this will make the kids happier, and hubby happier. I don't know why I have had so many issues with this in the past. I have always been very supportive of my husband and anything he has wanted to do with his life. My thought is that if he is happy with his job, then I will be happy because I won't have a husband wishing he was doing something else. But I have never put that same philosophy to myself. Sometimes mom's get so crazy. We stress about making sure our family has everything they need. Denying ourselves some basic needs. I don't know why we try to be supermom but we do.
So this is the year of the older but wiser me. :)
