I have a new mantra. Be Fabulous.
I turned 30 not that long ago, and on my birthday was in bed, watching TV and started to think back over my twenties and whether or not I was happy with the person who was suddenly 30. I wasn’t. I love my life- my husband, my boys (as I write this, I’m being nuzzled by the youngest kidlet). I admit, I don’t like who I was turning into. This has nothing to do with being a stay at home mom, but everything to do with expectations and personal goals.
I went from being fearless, to a woman who was receding into the background because she had decided that was the only way things could be.
So, I’m going to be fabulous. Instead of pressuring myself to finish a novel, I’m working on outlines, notes and research. Instead of forgetting to eat meals, I’m going to make sure I eat regularly- and not just a quick sandwich or leftovers. Something that I want to eat, and that will make me happy in what will likely be a crazy day. And I’m actually putting a workout plan in place, so that I can get back into shape and have more energy.
That’s my plan for my 30s, but it’s something that you can do at any age. Don’t forget that you’re amazing. Don’t tell tear yourself down if you haven’t met a goal that you set- just reevaluate and try again. Be fabulous and fearless. I know you can.
I’m going to make weekly posts on how this project of mine is going. Just a weekly summary of how I’ve done. Feel free to share your attempts, if you want to give it a shot!
