Starting Today

I will spend more time laughing and playing in my house than cleaning it.

Starting Today
I will revel in the fact that my children get to see their grandparents everyday because they live with us and not look at how much work and responsibility it is.

Starting Today
I will be grateful for 5 and a half years of marriage and forget all the potential problems that may be lurking in the back of my mind.

Starting Today
I will not snap at the nearest person because I have PMS.

Starting Today
I will find joy in my 2 year old's sassy, demanding tone, because I know who she got it from and I also know she won't be 2 much longer.

Starting Today
I will accept my flaws, insecurities, cottage cheese thighs and all the other imperfections I see when I look in the mirror.

Starting Today
I will no longer compare myself to other mothers, women, people, I am me and that's ok.

Starting Today
I will enjoy being me and all that I have around me because I'm not promised tomorrow.

Starting Today
I will breath in every moment and let it seep into my very soul because all I have is today.

What will you start doing today?

"I am not promised tomorrow." YIKES.. that one hit a cord with me. I'm queen of "TOMORROW I'll do this.. or TOMORROW I'll do that.." But ur right.. Im NOT promised a tomorrow either.

Love your outlook, though, easier said than done.. BUT I have come such a long way from the not so nice woman I was many years ago, and its all because of thinking of that!!

I love this post. You always post something for thought. I think this is great. I too will try to do better even on PMS days. Gosh it is hard.

Love the new makeover :) so cute!
Yes, it's hard to think that all we might have is today! I agree, I don't obsess about the house as much as I used to (taking pictures of it when it is cleaned up, because it never really looks like that!) I've learned the chores and cleaning are always going to be there, and try to enjoy the kids while they're young, and not snapping during PMS is a real tough one! I am sensing those right now! LOL! And I get so hungry for junk food! Great post, I'm so glad to sharing this journey with you! You have helped me think about things I could always work on with myself too :)
