A Drop Of Joy Juice In This Moment

I had a revelation today.

I can still do so much in this moment, even though this moment is so full and filled up.

At times it gets overwhelming, and I’m frustrated with my lack of time to devote to myself and my dreams.

I still get selfish sometimes. I want for me. I want to do for me. I want to live for me. And in some ways that is healthy. Just because you’re a parent doesn’t mean you stop dreaming and hoping and wishing and wanting and striving and living.

But sometimes you just flat out have to shelve those grandiose dreams for a later date, and work on the things that are feasible at this moment in time.

So that’s what I’m doing. At this moment in time I carve out what little I can for me. I take baby steps. I inch my way towards my end goal.

Often I feel urgency. I feel like we only have this one life and we never know how long that will be. But in the same token, if I don’t know how long it’ll be shouldn’t I be putting my all into this moment in time? These days when my cup is running over with people who need me, love me, adore me, just have to have my attention at all times?

I’ll always make time for me. It’s important and necessary for my job as a Mother and wife and productive and caring citizen of this world… because if I’m not filling up my cup with a few drops {or more!} of my joy juice then I won’t have enough for everyone else.

In this moment I live.

  1. It’s hard to balance out yourself and your children. But if you don’t take that time to take care of yourself you may not end up being there for them at all. Plus it’s good for them to see you striving for your goals and dreams it gives them an example to teach them that they can dream and can have goals for their lives. And what an amazing example it is when you meet one of your goals or achieve one of your dreams.
