Two weeks after the beginning of the year, I can officially say that the year has started.
For some reason I feel like the first two weeks of the year still feels like the previous year or is it only me that feels that way?
For the past year when the new year hits I come up with a word for the upcoming year that I want to use as inspiration.
This year is no different.
I decided to choose my word for 2019.
We live in a world full of constant pressures.
We often come across the perfect mom, dedicated wife, the amazing body, great career and great relationship.
Honestly, as much as we try not to compare ourselves, we simply can’t.
We simply can’t help but to pressure ourselves with what we “think” we should be doing.
Self-doubt is something that is hard for us to understand, but that we constantly fall for.
I’ve been a victim of this feeling several times.
As we begin to age, not that 28 or 30 is such an old age, we often get pressured about what we should accomplish by a certain age or time frames.
For the most part we put the pressure on ourselves.
We have been into school mode for almost three months.
My daughter second grade teacher is focusing intensely in reading this year.
When it comes to reading, our kids tend to dread reading time often or at least mine.
I find that when I say “Jailah it’s time to read” she tries almost everything to not do it.
Of course as a mom we MUST always find ways to implement things our kids don’t like and make them like it right??!!!
While listening to my daughter read on one of her reading nights, I figured I could maybe do something outside of the ordinary and have reading afternoons at the park.
