Today I will absolutely rock at life. It’s a big statement. I know. But I totally believe it. There are days that my wagon is dragging. There are days when I could use an extra 12 hours of sleep. I’ve decided that today though, I will totally rock it out!

Creating a life you love begins with creating a day you loveHow we start the day really sets the tone for what the day will look like. For some that looks like an early morning work out. I don’t do it nearly enough. When I do, I never regret  getting up to move my body. It can be hard to roll out of the bed when I really just want 10 more minutes. Some people start the day with affirmations. It’s a great way to remind yourself of your awesomeness and speak some positivity into your life.

Creating a life you love begins with creating a day you loveAnother good way to start your day is with meditation. It’s really popular right now. Everyone is talking about mindfulness and being in the moment. There are so many apps that make it easy to get your zen on. I start my day with a little mediation. It’s my only chance to get some quiet time before my kids wake up. Once it’s done, I also take whatever time is left for me to go over my to do list. It’s long. It always is. I fill it everyday with things for the kids, my errands, house stuff, biz stuff. It can be pretty massive.

I’m switching things up today. Instead of just focusing on the things I want to check off my to do list, I’ll look at it from another angle. Today I will absolutely rock at life. Why not? I have everything in me to do it.

I’ve got an idea or two for pulling this off.
Today, I will… see my kids for the tiny humans they are and be silly with them.
2 Today, I will… take the pressure off myself to finish every single thing on my never ending to do list
3 Today, I will… take at least 30 minutes of me time. It can be hard to come by since I’m home with my kids. It’s possible though. It’s necessary too.
4 Today, I will… wear the red lip. Sometimes a little lipstick goes a long way to make a mom feel like a woman.
5 Today, I will… enjoy the little things. They’re really the big things.

I’ll also remember to not limit this list to just today.

Yep. Today I will rock at life. It won’t be because I’ve done something earth-shattering. It won’t be because I’ve conquered the world. It will be because I’ve conquered the day. That’s a great start.

What will you do with your day?

  1. I am lucky in that l am both a morning and a pretty positive person 🙂 . I’ve always wondered about meditation, seems to work for a lot of people. It’s something l wouldn’t mind trying. I like the part about being silly with the little kids. It would put things into perspective. They live for the moment, which is sometimes what adults forget.

  2. I plan on rocking at life tomorrow – lol – because I’m giving myself a rare half a day off to relax and go to the ballet. And I’ll rock at life tonight by diving into a new book. Thanks for the motivation!

  3. I know this sounds cheesy but any day spent with my husband, is a day that rocks. He brings peace to my otherwise active and stressed out mind. He makes me laugh even when I don’t want too. I’m a pretty positive person but I tend to allow the weight of others wear me out and weigh me down. Again, my husband helps me to purge that and enjoy life.

  4. I plan tone more intentional about rocking because it’s so easy to get caught up in what we don’t get around to doing. Lately I’ve been shutting work down and being silly with the kiddies!

  5. These are great tips. I’m so not a morning person but I LOVE mornings… does that even make sense? I love not being forced to do things in the morning but love the beauty of mornings “my way”. I try not to check my email (a current stressor for me) until after 12PM, sometimes 5PM to keep those negative feelings from distracting my productivity or ruining my day.

  6. My problems is I want to be a morning person so so bad, i get so much done in the mornings…if I could just get up LOL
    I have been trying to start out my mornings with meditation and journaling. It really helps when I do.
    And I’ve been making myself put on SOME makeup everyday. Even if it’s just powder! Something!

  7. As Women we definately need those day or times that we take time for ourselves. We need it to.rebuild our spirit and our strength. Today I am working but last week I took a day for just me.
