I know there are plenty of New Year’s promotions out there promising to whittle those 10 last pounds away, get rid of your spider veins or laser off that unsightly hair.  Forget those.

Welcome to 2012, friends!

I know there are plenty of New Year’s promotions out there promising to  whittle those 10 last pounds away, get rid of your spider veins or laser off that unsightly hair.  Forget those.

What do you think about spending the first few weeks of 2012 focusing inward and on yourself?  Specifically, I want you to examine how you feel about yourself as woman and a mother.

I’m calling this my “Happy Mother Challenge,” but it’s really an abbreviated stroll through my book “The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers” that will take place here on my blog.

Here’s how it works:

  • Every Wednesday for the next 10 weeks I’ll post an entry here on the blog with a specific challenge that goes along with the 10 Habits of Happy Mothers.  If you need a copy of the book, you can purchase it here.
  • You just have to read and play along. I encourage you to really commit to reading and absorbing each lesson.  Each chapter will have a brief assignment for you to do that can be completed in 5 minutes or less (I know how busy you all are!).
  • After you’ve completed the exercise for each week, come back and leave a comment if it was helpful to you or not and what you learned.
  • That’s it!

What do you think, Moms? Anyone out there ready to accept my challenge?

Here’s what you do to get started. Get the book and get a partner involved with you. We’re always more committed if we have someone to keep us accountable.  Invite your girlfriends, post about it on your blog, Facebook page or Twitter feed.  The Happy Mother Challenge will start Wednesday, January 11.  :)
