Mom, Make a Promise to Yourself in 2014

new year new you
Dear Mom,

It’s the first day of 2014, and it’s a good time to jump start on taking care of the most important person in your world: YOU! Yes, your children important too, but how good of a mom can you be when you’re tired, weary, anxious, frustrated, desperate, overwhelmed and angry. How much longer can you go on, letting others take a priority in your life. What good is it to be resentful of others because you don’t ask for help or support.

Isn’t it time you did something for yourself without feeling guilty about it? Let this be the year you are a top priority! Let this be the year where you don’t accept the leftovers life has for you. It is possible to love and care for your family as well as yourself.  Make a promise to yourself in 2014.

Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to
every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel like there is
something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your
optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best,
and expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the
greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too
strong for fear, and to happy to permit the
presence of trouble.
