Selfish Mom Project – Week 2

First I feel obligated to clear the air to what exactly I’m doing…

Being selfish gets such a negative connotation. Really I’m not practicing being ‘selfish’ I’m practicing actually taking a step back and LIVING life. My blog was shared by a friend this week and it really put it in a better perspective for me even! The sweet friend who shared doesn’t even have kids yet still could relate. I can’t stress enough when our cup isn’t filled as a person not just a mom but as a person it’s hard to fill anyone else’s. If my form of being selfish is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

This project is for me as a wife and mom is to take a step back from what I was doing because it wasn’t working.

To go with the flow a bit because I’m horrible at this and need to work on it.

To find more compassion and grace and give not only to myself these things but give them to others as well.

To find myself again…it’s easy to get lost sometimes and forget.

To reconnect with my spiritual self. This needs to happen the most.
