Many of us mothers don’t know what we are good at, what we can accomplish, and what brings us real pleasure.
#1 – MAKE A LIST
Many of us mothers don’t know what we are good at, what we can accomplish, and what brings us real pleasure. We obsess so much about what we don’t like in ourselves and we completely fail to define ourselves by what we do like. So stop with the negative!! Make a list of the things you are really good at and write them down. Write down what you are, what you like, and what you dream about, and whenever the negative thoughts come, think on these things that are positive.
Then go a step further: Act on them. Buy an outfit that shows off the best part of your figure. Schedule an activity that makes you feel good about your life. Make a date with a friend who is upbeat and who likes who you are. Start being the kind of friend you want to be and stop thinking about how you let your friends down. Tremendous amounts of energy leave us daily because we exhaust it in trying what not to be rather than embracing what we want to do.
