When February rolled around, I spent some time thinking about what area in my life needed help. As a new mom, it seemed every area in my life needed improvement (deep breath!). But February brought up the idea of LOVE. Obviously, my relationship with my husband definitely needed a boost so I decided, and he obliged, that we’d make an effort every day to connect, hug, kiss, and yes, (Mom, skip this part!) sometimes, that led to (GASP!) sex.
The other part of my February resolution was to love myself. You can imagine the terrible things I’ve thought to myself about my body, my self-worth, the bags under my eyes, etc. etc. I tried to replace those thoughts with compliments and appreciation. And you know what? It worked.
“I’m smart enough and good enough and doggone it, people like me.”
