We love featuring our moms’ and coaches’ stories! We are sharing a message from one of our Inner Circle Mamas, who also happens to be currently our CFO! We are so excited to have more and more committed parents get involved in our non-profit coop!
Here is the message from Rejeanne:
As each New Year approaches, I ask myself what I’d like to work on. Not which 10 things but which one thing, if I gave it my attention would make me happier, make my life easier and have me feel more in alignment with who I am. I know even when I get a good habit going, I fall off the wagon and have to start again, but I have realized that part of that journey is simply getting back on. Not staying off the wagon because I slipped and tumbled, and I’ve learned it’s much easier to do that with a friend on the wagon extending a hand.
I loved the New Year blog post that came out about Wins rather than Resolutions (some great wins shared by our moms in the community!). When we reflect on our wins it allows us to start this New Year off on a motivational note rather than feeling we are already behind with the resolutions.
Generally nothing really needs to be fixed. Improved is the bigger desire, easier, more fun, joyous.
I encourage you to take some time as I am and reflect on that which you accomplished last year. For many of us these past years have not been easy. Even that is a win. We made it through! Here is another new start and another opportunity to continue to practice at this thing called life.
Being part of the GPS community keeps me reminding myself of how I’m winning. The little things that weren’t so little not so long ago. Asking for help and building a community around me to help with my girl. As a single mom this was one of the biggest things for me to learn and continue to reach out for. Giving myself permission to ask for what I need and be okay with how things are.
This year for me my focus is going to be on my health. Learning to put myself first, developing the habits to see some real change. I’m not getting younger and the importance of this in respect to my family is becoming more evident to me every day. This is hard. It’s not been an area of success for me in the past and I am seeing more and more clearly on how important it is.
I hope you can take some time to do a little soul searching and find that important next thing to focus on this year. That which brings you more in alignment with who you are and your family.
>>Please share your one important focus in the comments!
Blessings in 2022. I hope you stay tuned to another year of growth with us and building our community.
