Remember the goals YOU had before you had children that you’ve set aside for later or maybe even forgot about?
The busyness of motherhood and everyday life has dampened some of this passion. My obligations at home have pushed out the time to nurture and pursue my dreams and intentionally plan for my goals.
My new morning routine has released a fire inside me that’s been there for so many years. It has transformed me in so many ways. I’ve written about it a few times. Amazing how using the early morning hour has made so much possible. Some example of these are daily journal, read books, excersice, read the entire New Testament in 8 weeks!
These are all things I would do sporadically or just didn’t get around to it. Managing a household, homeschool, and caring for 6 kids left little time or energy for these.
Because of my morning routine now I am even pursuing of a childhood dream; writing my first book! There’s no way I had time to take on a project like this before without sacraficing my children and husband.
The key to reaching this goal is that it is getting done a little at a time. Every day I schedule to write 200-400 words. I only write during my morning routine when everyone else is sleeping. Though reaching this goal will take time, just working on it every day gives me a different kind of joy and purpose.
So many benefits from my morning routine. My passion is to share this with as many moms as possible because it’s something I wish someone would have told me 10 years ago!
What would YOU do with one extra hour in a day?
Would YOU consider going to bed 1 hour early and waking up 1 hour earlier?
Read in this post what things you can get done during this hour and start YOUR journey toward self-care and maybe pursuing a dream YOU’VE set aside.
