"The most important thing in life is knowing the most important things in life."

Hey Everyone!

See I told you I'd be blogging more ;)! I know its February and most people have already forgotten about their New Years Resolutions, but really they should only be just beginning. I want to tell you about what's been going on in my life and some changes that I've made not only for New Years but for a lifetime.

So often ( especially as women ) we get so caught up trying to be superwomen, we have a million and one things on our plate and we are playing catch up each and every day. But guess what, when you live like that you become a jack of all trades and a master of none. You get by and do everything at an average level but you cant be great at any one thing.

I tend to ALWAYS have a lot of things going on and it becomes really stressful. Right before the New Year, I had a huge breakdown. I called the hubby (he was out of town), and was just feeling like I wasn't doing anything 100%. We talked for a quite awhile and it really helped me put some things in perspective. I want to share some of those things with you.

It's ok to slow down.
Sometimes we are moving a mile a minute that we cant enjoy life and moments are passing by. I was so busy with my personal training schedule, I'd literally get home from picking my son up from school and be rushing to get his hw and dinner done so I could head out to meet a client. Every day became such a monotonous  routine that I was missing things going on with my son and husband. These are moments I used to cherish and now they were just passing by.

1st Priority CEO of home.
When you choose to become a wife and a mother, your role as a woman changes whether you like it or not. I am not saying women cant have their own companies, etc, but I am saying your first position should be CEO of home. You cant be building outside companies while your inside one is falling down. I decided I would cut out in-person training for right now and just focus on my virtual training and the blogging portion of my company so that I could make my own schedule and my family and home could come first. I have started doing this for the last month and I absolutely love it!! I have been doing so many different projects to enhance my home and my family. My first project has been converting our garage into a playroom for my son. I didnt even realize how much I love doing DIY projects and I am officially obsessed. Pinterest has been my new best friend lol. I cant wait to share all of the things I have been working on. Now I have so much more energy and I feel like I am in control of my life.

Look at the bigger picture
My husband has been wanting another baby since my son was about two. He was a preemie baby so we weren't able to do it right then, but even when my son was on a more normal schedule I still wasnt ready. When I took time to think about why I didnt want another baby, I realized it was because I was worried about what that would do for my company, how it would change my freedom, etc... Now even writing that looks crazy because anyone who knows me knows I LOVE being a mom! So for the big news of this blog, wait for it... lol: We are officially trying for another baby. Praying God blesses us with a little girl but either way we will be ecstatic.

I hope this helped out a bit. Shortly after the conversation with my husband, I had a coffee date with a good friend and she was suprisingly going through a similar situation. I realized that a lot of women struggle with this and I decided I would be open about my situation and I hope it can be a blessing for you.
