4 Ways to Start Your Day off with a Positive Mindset

4 Ways to Start Your Day off with a Positive Mindset

These past two and half weeks have been an absolute roller coaster! I have had many ups and downs, mainly downs. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I made it public that I was just not in a good space whatsoever. And that exact date was February 8, 2020 and today is February 24, 2020 … I AM JUST NOW GETTING IT TOGETHER. Why in the heck did it take me 17 days to feel some type of good again?

January literally was amazing to me, so I don’t get how February comes and ruins it all. Maybe, I lost focus? I have just been exhausted to be 100% transparent with you guys. I mean, there are just so many roles that I am trying to excel in. Especially being a woman, I feel like we wear so many hats — wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, coworker, etc. — I’m telling you this list can go on, which is bonkers!!!!

Am I the only one who this happens to?

Well I refuse to end the month off like this, so I took the time during the beginning of last week to find the things that are limiting me, and trust me I’m still finding those things out. I’m in a much better head space and have done a couple of things to start my day off on a positive note. And I’m going to share those with you.

Stuck in a hard space.

Stuck in a hard space.

Where do I even start!? 

These past few weeks have been kind of a roller coaster for me and things are finally starting to slow down. Let me give you quick insight on the past month.  In addition to working full time, I was also working part time at Class Studios. Why pick up a part time?  It was my way of getting my foot in the door into the fitness industry, because at the end of the day … it is my passion and what I want to build my career in.

MY 2020 VISION

MY 2020 VISION

Happy 2020 my loves!

Feels a little weird saying/writing 2020, doesn’t it?

A couple of weeks ago I reflected on my 2019 goals (Ciao 2019|A YEAR IN REVIEW) and also set goals for 2020 (2019|It’s been real, bring on 2020). 2019 was definitely a year where I kind of got to find myself all over again, especially with being a new mom and trying to adjust to my new normal.

I will admit that I had more bad times than good and that’s totally okay, because the things that I went through taught me to hold my head high and go after what the f*** I want … screw what everyone else thinks. I won’t go into details, but just know I’ve had enough and am making some decisions to just make sure things go my way this year.

I definitely reach some goals last year and made some head way, but I want 2020 to really be my year. I don’t want to just say it, but I actually want to take action. So here I am, picking 5 goals out of my list of what 14 that I had to make sure I really hone in on them. Here we go, again ...

Mommy Guilt! Embrace it.

Mommy Guilt! Embrace it.

img_4816There will be so many times you feel like you’ve failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child you are a super mom. And don’t you forget it!

 

Mom Guilt.

  1. The feeling of guilt, doubt, anxiousness or uncertainty experienced by mothers when they worry they’re failing or falling short of expectations in some way.

Before having a baby, I would occasionally hear about this thing called mom guilt. I could not, for the life of me, understand why it was so difficult for someone to leave their child. Whether it was to go workout, hang out with friends, or even just too simply have some me time.  Now I have a one year old and completely understand this whole mom guilt thing and I believe we do it to ourselves. In my opinion, mom guilt is induced and we Mama’s should give ourselves a break, as if there is not enough social pressures already.
