I’m getting fired up again. It’s been a couple of months since I fell of my inspired motherhood wagon. We had company and we were moving so I suppose it is to be expected that life would be a bit disheveled for a while.
I’m getting to the point now where I can’t take it anymore though and I am ready for more discipline in my life. I am badly needing to meet regularly again with God. Right now I have been stressed-out, mean mommy. I don’t like that version of myself and neither do my kids.
I struggle big time with perfectionism. Perfect: this is a word that should not be in any mommy’s vocabulary. I want everything to run perfectly and if it can’t then I usually just don’t do anything at all. All or nothing, that’s the way I work and you know what? It just doesn’t work for me! Why do I return to perfectionism time and time again?
For example, I want to be able to get up before my kids to spend some time with the Lord before starting the day. So I try to fit in a Beth Moore study, 20 minutes of praying, 20 minutes of exercise and getting showered and ready! Sure, that would be ideal but that’s a lot to try and squish in the wee hours of the morning. So this time around, I am just going to “settle” for a daily scripture reading and a little bit of prayer. That’s all. I’d like to get up about 30 minutes before the kids.
Right now I am working on getting myself back on track, simplifying my life and I am working on a couple of practical and inspirational blog series’ for Inspired Mama.
What are you wrestling with these days? What are some of your goals?
I appreciate all of you who read Inspired Mama. Thanks for being here!
