Choices…

Life

Everyday we are faced with choices. Choices like what we are going to wear, what we are going to eat, all the way to what we are going to do during the day and how we should parent. Lately life seems to be so full of chocies that I just wanted to snuggle up in my couch, pretend I am a kid again, and do absolutely nothing. Haha, sadly life doesn’t really work like that.

Too often I get caught up in being Super Mom. I think that I should be able to do everything and be everywhere. I am so afraid to say no and admit that there is something that I can’t do. Oh, you would think that I would learn. I do have so many goals and dreams for me and my little family, but I need to remember that I don’t have to do everything all at once. I have to make a choice, either I can run my family around and try to be super mom, or I can just do my best and be a super mom in the eyes of my children. I am trying really hard to do the later.

“As you create a home, don’t get distracted with a lot of things that have no meaning for you or your family. Don’t dwell on your failures, but think about your successes. Have joy in your home. Have joy in your children. Have joy in your husband. Be grateful
for the journey.”

-Marjorie Pay Hinckley

So I am trying to be better. I am trying to make the right choices for my family. Choices that keeps me involved, keeps me progressing, keeps me being a good wife, and keeps me being the best mom that I can be.

So I am still going to craft, still like Pinterest way too much, still get together with friends, still go to the Library, still work, still laugh, still cuddle and read, still be me.

But I think I am finally figuring out that there really is moderation in all things. So here is to taking life just a little bit slower. Enjoying my children’s smiles and little bit more, and making sure cuddle time is on our to do list everyday. And enjoying the little moments that happen each and everyday!
