PARENTING! The Hardest & Most rewarding

I just read this article about parenting and liked it. I know for myself parenting can often times be hard, but also SO SO rewarding and wonderful!

So here are a few reminders for all my blog followers who are parents:
  1. Give yourself a break—you don't need to be so hard on yourself.
  2. Just say no! What are your real priorities?
  3. Take time to write it down. Journaling will bring clarity to your life.
  4. Slow down and savor living in the moment.
  5. Plug into your kids so you can really connect with them.
  6. Don't forget about your husband—intimacy is life-affirming!
  7. Reach out beyond your family. It will enrich everyone.
  8. Make your physical and mental health a priority.
  9. Is more always better? Simplify everything.
  10. Be a little selfish—you deserve it, and it will make you a better mother.
Here is the FULL article:

    I have been trying to simplify and focus more at the living in the moment at home with my kids. Especially since Gavin will be in school next year.
