“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Fascinating quote… I read it now and it makes sense in every way. If I think back to who I was one year ago, that person would not have had a clue as to what that meant.
One year ago, I was:
-Exhausted with two toddlers.
-Unable to feel as though I was accomplishing anything on any given day.
-Still wearing my pajamas when my husband got home from work.
-Annoyed that my children woke me up every day because I was sleeping in.
-Eating terribly and doing nothing to nourish my body properly.
-Never having a plan for dinner.
-Going through the motions.
-Lacking the energy to take my children to do any fun activities.
-NOT LIVING LIFE!
It was terrible. I always blamed not having enough time to do anything on the fact that I wasn’t receiving any outside help. I never got a break. I was exhausted. And don’t get me wrong. It is hard work caring for the children along with everything else that comes along with being a stay at home mom. BUT…. I could not find balance because I was not doing anything. THAT was the problem.
Einstein’s quote is perfect.
Once I started MOVING, exercising, eating healthy, DOING something about all of this negative energy surrounding me, EVERYTHING changed. All of a sudden, I was more energetic and able to get things done around the house, dinner was planned and served daily (my husband really appreciated that), I had already worked out before my children woke up and I would greet them with a smile on my face, the house was getting cleaned, laundry was done, I was bathed and dressed before my husband even left for work, the children and I left the house daily for fun activities… I was LIVING!
The day that I decided to take care of myself was the day that everything else began to get taken care of, as well. In order to find balance in our lives, we must keep moving.
If you are ready to start moving, then let’s do it!
