These 3 Things

These three things

There are three things I must do everyday. Take care of myself, my family, and business. My all-encompassing trinity.  I need all three.  All three need me.  We need each other in more ways than we realize.  Finding a balance is the most difficult part for me.

Honestly, for most of my life I put business before myself and my family. I believed that providing for my family was the most important thing.  By spending all my time working I failed myself and my family.   By not taking care of myself, I was unable to see how much my family needed me.  I was in a fog of poor health, exhaustion and poor life choices.

When I finally started trying to take care of myself, I was able to see how much my family needed me. I’m still in awe of how much it take to care for a family.  I am much more capable of rising to this task when I take care of myself.

I’m not ashamed to say my first priority every day is to work out.  I need it .  It clears my mind and helps me feel I’ve accomplished something.  Being a self-employed, work at home single mom, this is very important to me.  Once I’ve worked out, I feel I can accomplish almost anything.

I can provide healthy food and a healthy environment for my children.  I can generate enough income and resources to care for my family.  I just need to work out first.  I need to make sure I am present for my family. I can do this.  So can you.

Abuse is an unfortunate reality in this world and is more than physical assault. The invisible trauma we suffer can result in chronic illness, which is a relentless beast gnawing away at the soundness of mind. Education and support from others are vital in the healing journey.
