227 – Where are you going to be 1 year from now?

Mama, how often do you think about your future? Like what you want specifically for you? I know you think about your kids future, maybe they’re going to play this sport or play those instruments. You think “what are they going to be when they grow up?” But what are you going to be when you grow up? And Mama’s Daily Dose is.. Where are you in a year from now? Well, let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.

When you have kids, especially young kids, a lot can change in one year, in 365 days. Just think about it, that’s why so many people take those monthly photos in the first year because your kid changes so much. But you know what? You change a ton too mama. And how often do you think about and plot out where you want to be in the future? 

And a lot of stuff changes all the time. And sometimes it can be difficult to be like, “Oh, hey, in 10 years, I want to be here.” But I want you tofirst focus on, where do you want to be in one year? Who do you want to be? Do you want to be in the same place that you are right now? Or do you want to change? What are the things that you would like to see in your life? 

So often as moms, we focus on the future of our kids. And yes, that is important, too. I was talking to my son, and I’m like, “hey, what sport do you want to play in the fall?” It’s April, and we’re already talking about what sport he wants to play in the fall! And then I took a moment, and asked, “well, what do I want to do in the fall? There’s more that I want to do than chauffer my kid to baseball or whatever sport he chooses. So you take the time to think about where your kids are going to be in a year or so. But have you taken the time to think about where you want to be? What are some things that you want to accomplish? Where do you want to be in April 2023? What does April 2023, you look like? What is she doing? What is she feeling? Who is she?

Mama, your action today is to set a two to three minute timer and just write down all the things that you want for you in the next year. So in April 2023 What are you doing? Who are you? What are you feeling? Those feelings are so important because as humans for one, we are emotional beings. We make so many decisions based on our feelings, and even more so as moms it’s like that mom intuition that we talked about before. So many of those choices that we make in life are off of those gut feelings. So take the time today to think about where you, YOU, specifically want to be in one year in April 2023. And have a great day free of mana guilt because you deserve it.
