This is a blog about my life, it probably won't change your life, but I find it a good outlet. I have struggled with motherhood at various times for lots of reasons, but love my two children to bits. My husband is my rock and without him I would be lost. Like most mums, I am trying to find the balance between working, being a mother, wife, friend, school mum and whoever I am. Sometimes it all comes together really well, and sometimes well. Hope you enjoy reading my ramblings. Sooz xx
Write a Family Mission Statement.....no, I don't think so!
At least that's what I thought until very recently. I loved deciding on what my core values are, and it has already helped me in some situations - and lead me into "trouble" in some (in the eyes of others).
So - can I do it write a mission statement I mean. Yes and no. I am going to write a more personal mission statement, rather than a family one. One that reflects the type of year I would like to have with my family, friends, colleagues and the people I meet along the way.
It is not going to change my world, more serve as a reminder on how I would like to live my life, and what I would like the outside world to see when they look in. Something I can print out and read daily, to remind me of the person I want to be.
My attempt is below - and I guess what really matters is it is just me that needs to be happy with it.
I will live everyday as a new day.
As a mother, I will greet my children with a smile and a cuddle.
I will help my children learn by nourishing their hearts, minds, bodies and souls.
I will be the healthiest person I can be and set an example for my children.
My husband and I together can achieve anything.
As a family we will make an environment that is safe, secure, full of love and laughter.
