Today I’m starting my “journey to my best self” – which has sort of been on hold over the last several months. I was so tired during my pregnancy, and quite a few days I just didn’t feel good. My goal was to make it through each day, and then make it to the preciousness that was waiting for me at the end. I’m almost a month postpartum, and I feel like now is a great time to pick up where I left off.
Mentally, not doing anything productive or anything for myself was hard. I live for routines and crossing things off my to-do list. I love being able to practice self care here and there. I’ve felt sort of in a rut lately without those things, so I’m really looking forward to getting back in to my groove. My big kids start back to school tomorrow. I have to go in to work myself a little too, but I think having the time during the day where it’s just me and Harper will be good for me trying to get back in to those routines.
The journey to my best self is a few different things. I want to work on my physical health and wellness, my mental health, and my spiritual health. I want to FEEL GOOD at the end of the day, and those three areas are where I’m going to focus for right now. When those things are in line, I usually feel my best.
We are about to start our last semester at MSU, and then who knows where life will take us. I do know that we are so excited as a family to start a new chapter in our lives. I hope to have made some great progress by the time December rolls around!
