Parenting is the toughest gig on the planet. Not only are you responsible for the life and wellbeing of this little human, but also to raise him/her not to be a dirtbag. And I think it starts with this...patience and understanding. The amount of stress a screaming toddler can inflict is enough to drive even Mother Teresa mad. And toddlers don’t care about things like bills, deadlines, or migraines. They are in the learning phase of communication at its most basic level. Meaning if you respond with anger you will probably get anger in return. If we can pause long enough to remember this we can choose not to get mad, but rather understand. We can then find the patience to help foster better communication and explain why a behavior is incorrect as oppose to just yelling that it’s wrong. When my blood starts to boil and I’m about to lose it at my two little angels, I : 1. Admit and recognize to myself I’m getting mad 2. Take 3 long slow breathes WITH my kids 3. Talk softly like at a library 4. Explain WHY their behavior was incorrect and offer a better solution. 5. Ask if mommy can have some privacy for a minute (it’s ok to take a moment to yourself to calm down) 5. Hug it out (this always helps) . . . #habitandhome#positivemood#motivation#betterforit#staypositive#parenting#motherhood#momlife#patience#toddlerlife#dailyparenting#honestmom#growthmindset#lifelessons#fitmom#fitfam#miami#coach#choosehappy#motivationmonday
We have one life. I’ve never been a fan of Mornings or Monday’s! But our mind and our mornings set the mood for our days, weeks and life’s! Yep EVERYTHING I choose to do or not do has an impact of how my LIFE will go! As big or as small they may seem at the moment! Soooo I choose to make it the best I can! #ichoosehappy#wanttojoinme #buildingmyteamofhappinessdaily #mondaymotivation#miraclemornings

Why I LOVE my at home workouts... . . - Don’t need a baby sitter . . - On my own time - no set class time . . - No one is watching my every move...Other than my girls! . . - Don’t have to figure out what I need to do to get results...I press play and follow a program that’s all laid out for me. . . - No monthly cost - I have a 1 time a year payment that works out to be $0.27 a day!
See what that box says? It couldn’t be more true!! Last year at this time I decided it was time to FINALLY take control over my health. No more putting it off No more saying “Next week” No more saying “I’m too busy” No more saying “I don’t have time” NO MORE EXCUSES!! • Was it scary? Yep! All new things usually are Was it hard? Heck yeah! Change isn’t easy Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY! This for sure has been the healthiest year of my entire life! • Here’s the thing, and I know you already know this, but a reminder every now and then doesn’t hurt... THE TIMING WILL NEVER BE PERFECT! Serisouly! There will always be something. Something that seems the be more important. Something that makes you feel like it’s not the perfect time. Again, THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME! But there is THE TIME!! And for some amazing ladies that time is TODAY as we start our #summershapeup • They’re starting their healthiest year of their lives TODAY! Are you?? If not, you can change that! And I can help you! Link is always in my bio 💕
It's time stop lying to yourself about who you are and what you REALLY want. Stop shrinking down, contorting into a pretzel, or otherwise DENYING who you are so you don't have to make the seemingly hard choice of going it alone. Yes, in relationships there are compromises. But healthy ones will never cause you to abandon your values, self worth, or dreams just so you can keep them. We all want to be chosen. To be 1st. To have someone look at us and say "that's my person" But what many people forget is that before anyone can choose you, YOU MUST FIRST CHOOSE YOURSELF. Being number 2 is not a feel good place to be..especially when it's you who's putting yourself in last place #treatyoself how you want to be treated. Xoxo. #goddessvibes#chooseyou#beyou#love
