Secrets to Happy Single Mommyhood
By KerriZane on August 12, 2013
Single motherhood can be challenging but also hugely rewarding. Here's my top secret to successfully managing a well-rounded fulfilling life and becoming a single mom superstar.
Ready for it....Know exactly who you are and truly, deeply appreciate those parts of you!
So how do we get clarity on who we are and what we love most about ourselves? It requires some deep reflection and a serious personal assessment session with yourself.
Here are three simple steps.
1. You'll need paper and a pen, this is a handwritten experience rather than a typed affair.
Write down all your pretty little details? Take your time and spell them out in every detail, right down to your sexy baby toe, it’s all good and it all counts.
Then write down your unmentionables. Again, take your time. Be super honest. No one else is going to read this paper but you, so it's okay to reveal your warts and all.
Choose which pretty little details you want to highlight and embellish. Consider those you would like to mollify or adapt. For example, if you are a people pleaser, but it works for you, stick with it, but make a commitment to yourself to only please those people who will truly appreciate your kindness.
2. Next, it's time to plot out your unmentionables. Perhaps some of them are not adaptable, like being 2 inches too short for your liking. Maybe you actually like some of them, like being a perfectionist. Others you might find you are ready to give up, adapt or surgically alter. Maybe you've had a bump on your nose since childhood. If the time is right, your finances are in order and you're clear mentally about embarking in a surgical procedure, you might want to see about a nose job. You're never too old and there is no shame in shameless self improvement!
3. Finally, create a plan for yourself with a timeline on how and when you want to make all your adaptations. A word of caution. Go easy on yourself. Time is on your side, there is no rush. If you want to have lasik surgery, so you won't have to wear glasses anymore, that's great. But you don't necessarily need to schedule the surgery tomorrow. You can plan it for 3 months from now. Just be sure that when you do make the commitment for the change, you stick with it.
Having a clear picture of your pretty little details and unmentionables is a great way to start your very own personal single mom superstar project.
