From what I gather,
#GOALS is often used in reference to relationships,
(like having a boyfriend who is shares his love for you on social media for all to see).
(yes, I stalk Big O's social media like an episode of CSI)
It's funny how #GOALS are different for a woman at every stage of their life.
In high school #GOALS is mostly about finding "that guy",
the one that makes you happy...
In your 40's #GOALS is more about finding "that girl",
the one that is truly in charge of your happiness.
Somewhere along the way it gets confusing...
starting a career,
figuring out how to keep those kids alive,
run a house,
have real friends,
oh, yeah...& have a marriage (the part where this crazy ride began)...
we were skinny,
we got fat,
we got skinny again,
tried to get skinny again,
you're a friend,
you're a wife,
you're a mama,
This mama thing is hard!
Mamas are busy,
& it's pretty easy lose track of who WE really are.
This year I'm working on that one...
stepping back &
getting in touch with who on earth I am now.
And just like Will taught me at the gym...
I've got to be the best Mandy that I can be,
and I can't do that if I don't like ME.
If you don't have any "New Years Goals" yet,
here's a very simple and realistic list for you to follow in 2015:
You're a mama!!
You're pretty awesome,
& you deserve that kind of love!
You deserve kind words,
you deserve time to exercise,
you deserve to do things that you enjoy
& you deserve feel awesome.
& I do too!
Watch out 2015,
we're gonna be the best we can be!
(starting right now)
Let's hop up &
go kick Monday's butt!
Go get after it, friends!
