It’s very easy to get down on yourself as a mom. It’s really easy to get caught up in “what other moms do” However, I chose to be intentional with what I want to do!
I found myself looking at blogs & posts of moms writing how they got up at 5 am made coffee + breakfast before there little one got up for the day. Another post about how they managed to put makeup on, clean the whole house, sleep train their child, make a 4 course meal.. all by 6pm. I’m not gonna lie.. I watch those moms on YouTube. I follow those blogs on Pinterest. I found myself comparing myself to all these moms who seem to always have their stuff together. My son will be 4 months, this month and all I can say I’ve accomplished is how to change a diaper in the dark and how to pick up dog poop while holding a leash & a baby in the other arm. (So serious)
I’m not going to lie, I set a goal for myself in January to be intentional with my time. Have I been 100% committed to that goal? No. Do I try here and there? Yes. Recently I found a mentor. If you’ve never had a mentor I highly suggest it. I’ve always had a PROFESSIONAL mentor in my work place. However never had a LIFE mentor. Somebody you look at and you say “lord, I would love to be like her!” With this whole quarantine it’s really brought me back to my goal… being intentional. Which also leads me to my mentor, Elyssa. Thankfully I met Elyssa through my fiancé + god truly knew what he was doing when he brought her in to our lives. She is an INTENTIONAL women of god. I’ve always “believed” in god. However it wasn’t until her that I wanted to begin my intentional journey of creating that closeness with him. Besides the fact of her helping me grow in my faith. She is a mother, a wife, a daughter with the want & willingness to help others. That’s what it’s all about right? That’s why I started this blog. To help others, to inspire others, to inspire MYSELF.
I truly have taken this time and looked at it as a blessing in disguise. Whether you have faith, whoever you believe in, whatever you believe in. I encourage you to be intentional with your time. You will be surprised what waking up with a game plan + killing your goals for the day will do for you.
I hope this post inspires you. I hope you go out in the world today, and inspire somebody else. I hope you set a goal + crush it! I would love to hold you accountable. Comment below, I would love to be that accountability partner. If you’re still reading, thank you so much.
Until the next one, Kianna (aka modern day mommy)
