Live Happy, Live Healthy, Live Green

My tips for living happy, healthy, and green!

Sometimes It’s Hard…

Sometimes its hard to be the person you want to be…

I want to be a wonderful mom, loving wife, great friend, helpful daughter, fun sister, and overall I want to be a good healthy person. But sometimes I need to step back and get perspective. I want to feed my family a healthy organic diet and do it on one income. I want to get myself back into pre-pregnancy shape. I want to have a healthy clean home, with no harmful chemicals. I want to go back to school.

I just have to remember that I can’t do all this at once. It is going to take time to change habits, work on a new budget, loose weight, and get things in order to go back to school. I have to remind myself that I am not superman…although I wish I was sometimes :) Its ok to have a cookie once in awhile, to not clean the house and play with the baby all day instead, and it is going to take time to get back into shape. Patience is not my strong suite but I am working on it.

There is some much pressure in the world to be on top of everything, look great all the time, and be as close to perfect as possible…but I think sometimes the biggest pressure is put on us by ourselves. My family and friends are not the ones looking for me to be perfect…I am the one who wants to be perfect for them. I don’t need to compare myself to others, I need to focus on the wonderful things I have in my life and slowly work towards my goals…pushing myself too hard and expecting too much just sets myself up for feeling some sort of failure.

I hope other women out there will remember that the ones who really love us don’t expect us to be perfect…its not possible! Remember to take time each day to be thankful for all that you have and look at the beautiful things around us.
