Last week I said a delicious life is one with free time. But there’s more to it than that!
A delicious life is a savory life, a life filled with moments to treasure.
Pride is considered a negative emotion, but there are lots of things in life that deserve pride. Maybe your kids accomplished something huge. Maybe you successfully negotiated a raise. Maybe you had a conversation with your ex and didn’t end up crying. Maybe you lost that weight. Maybe you chose salad instead of cookies for lunch. Yet when we are congratulated, we often dismiss our accomplishments, out of fear of appearing arrogant. Ladies, it’s not arrogant to be proud in your hard work!
When was the last time you allowed yourself to be proud?
I am ALWAYS talking about self-care on this blog. I encourage you to check out some of my posts if you haven’t already! A delicious life involves self-care, because it requires us to savor special moments. The smell of coffee or tea. The feeling of a cuddly child or pet in your lap. The sight of a sunset or full moon. The taste of a perfectly cooked meal. The sound of rain on a roof.
When was the last time you took 5 seconds to thoroughly enjoy a moment?
When my daughter was first born, I took a lot of pictures. Of course, I used our nice big camera for a lot of them, but I also used my phone. Prior to her birth, I had never really used my phone’s camera feature, but a baby making adorable faces 24/7 really showed me how useful a phone camera is! Now, there’s nothing wrong with spending time taking pictures, but it can distract us from fully appreciating the moment we are in. We spend a lot of time with our kids, but so often we are distracted. Maybe we’re taking pictures or videos of the cuteness. Maybe our best friend is texting about an emergency. Maybe we’re cooking dinner, or just plain exhausted from the day, or worried about the 5 million worries of every day life.
When was the last time you gave your child your undivided attention?
This isn’t about guilt.
This is about setting you free.
Free from “shoulds.”
Free from your own expectations.
Free from the expectations of others.
Free from mommy guilt.
