The most difficult challenge that faces us as moms is to retain some of who you are. It is a fact that our children shape and mould us as people, as we do them. I do however think it is important to not forget who you are and look after your own physical and emotional needs.
Something that has always been important to me is my relationship with my husband, which a lot of people neglect in the attempt to be the perfect mother. In my mind I am a wife first then a mother. Which is not because I do not love my girls as much but about the message I want to send them. I feel that if they see us in a happy healthy relationship they will want this for themselves. I am definitely not saying we are perfect but we are honest and open in our relationship which they hopefully see.
So the goals I am setting myself for this week are, to do something only for me and secondly do something to enrich the important relationships in my life.
