It’s *Think it Thursday* and it’s time to live it up –
As some of you know, I’m a single mom. Take the pressure to be a good mom and amplify it – because now you feel like you’re making up for extra problems your kids have to deal with.
The secret I’ve discovered for being a better mom for them, is living it up. Yep, having fun it so important. I don’t believe the lie that there’s no time for it, just because I have a lot of responsibilities.
Fun and laughter – is my lifeline.
If you feel exhausted and spread thin too often, maybe you need to have more fun too.
I usually blast music in the car and dance (especially when the person in front of me notices in their rear-view mirror and starts laughing).
Sometimes I sneak away with my friends and tell my kiddos they just need to fend for themselves for dinner. I know it will be a mess when I get home and I’m not really sure what they’ll actually eat – but I just let it go.
And whenever possible – I laugh. I especially laugh at my own jokes, because why not?
Fun and laughter will create energy for you. They will remind you that you’re a person separate from “mom.”
