It's just another Manic Monday for many Moms, but it doesn't have to be.
I heard a sermon yesterday that really spoke to me. The topic was about depression but the points made were really relative to healthy living whether you have depression or not and especially as a mompreneur.
The lesson was based on a scriptural passage taken from 1 Kings 19 involving Elijah, Ahab, and Jezebel. The story deals with Elijah feeling alone in his quest to do what he felt he was called to do. Elijah felt he needed to steal away in fear of being punished for his mission. He felt alone and left behind. God reassured Elijah that he would be ok and to continue on his path. God gave Elijah 3 things to do as he encouraged him to continue on his path. I am not going to rewrite the sermon. I will expound on the key points as to how I interpreted the relation to my life as a mompreneur.
1. Rest Well.
2. Eat Well
3. Live Well
As mompreneurs, we need these 3 points as a daily mantra in our lives and in our family's lives. When I decided to become a mompreneur, I too had to adopt these rules for my life.
Resting Well: Take the time to get your enough rest daily. Moms wear so many hats and have so many responsibilities and that's just with managing her own family. Now couple this with managing a business. Whew! I have to wipe my forehead just thinking of all of the multitasking we are required and elect to do. Resting is important for restoring our bodies and mind. Good rest helps with clearing your mind to be its most productive self. #STRONG
Eating Well: Be deliberate about your eating decisions. Not everyone will choose to have a plant-based diet. (I wish everyone would). So make choices that are healthy but also work for your lifestyle and life choices. Take it from me, it is difficult to make eating habit changes for more than just yourself. If your eating habits are becoming detrimental to your health and your family's health, then seek a positive change soon. It will be difficult to devote the time and attention to your goals and your family for that matter if and when your health begins to breakdown and cause additional problems to contend. Healthy eating choices equals a strong mind and body equal to #RESILIENT.
Live Well: This part of the message really spoke with me in that making choices to live well is extremely important. Sometimes it's difficult to consistently live well especially when you have hit a wall in your goal development or your family has hit upon a crisis. Disappointment sets in and you can become discouraged to continue on your path. Success has been defined as the ability to keep the same passion between failures. This was a phrase used by my mentor to encourage me on my path. Hiccups and roadblocks are sure to come just as sure as the sun rises every morning. So after much success when disappointing moments arise, keep believing in your dreams and keep living well. #LUMINOUS
