Making Goals as SAHM

I had recently read a blog by a fellow blogger (Shann Eva’s Blog) on her March Goals. She’s incorporated the goals she has yet to achieve with new ones she’s made, and the included short-term and long-term goals.

I find as a Stay-at-home-mom it’s so crucial to make goals for oneself. It’s so important to have something to work towards, because lord knows if you didn’t you’d just do this motherhood thing front, back, side, and front again. AND LETS BE HONEST, you can’t possibly just MAAAAAAAM all day, everyday, for as long as you’re living. I mean, it can’t all just be that! It doesn’t make you bad at motherhood or a bad mom at that, for wanting more! It doesn’t mean you can’t have other accomplishments,  other than birthing children (although that pretty much tops it all).

As moms, we accomplish tens and thousands of tasks all day. Well most of those tasks are not of ours. Not of anything we really want to do or want to be doing. It’s insane how much of us we pour into the lives that rely on us. I get it, we’re moms, I get it we’re supposed to because how else do we profess our eternal love for our children who is supposed to be our world and nothing else. Well, it makes me a rebellious mom, perhaps. I do what I want, on my own terms, based on my own ideas and understanding of motherhood.

I’m making monthly goals. That’s all!

Because March is almost done, and I’d rather start them at the beginning of the month, I’ll write this for April 2017.

 

April 2017

  • work-out 4 times a week, for 40 mins a day.
  • write in my journal daily with affirmations, negatives to positives, memories, moments, and fill a page at least (thorughout the day)
  • say at least one good thing that I love about each member of my family-to them, everyday
  • give myself an hour each day, to write in my journal in peace
  • eat healthier meals and try not to skip eating
  • try and smoke less
  • learn some breathing excercises
  • do one kind thing for someone, anyone, small, or big
  • Take a few hours on the weekend to dedicate to writing scheduled blog posts
  • Dedicate a time during the night to complete tasks for my blog page on facebook & for my blog site.
  • TAKE A BREAK, daily
  • Complete any wedding stuff every weekend

 

I will complete as many of these goals throughout the month, and whatever I don’t complete, I will add on to my next month’s monthly goal post. Let’s make each other accountable for what we want to achieve for ourselves!

I know it seems like another long list of tasks for you to complete, but this is for you. I promise it will make you feel good!

 

It will make [YOU] feel good!!

Maria, author of Imommy blog. Maria has three children, Apollo (8), Artemis (2), and Cassiopeia (1). She is due to marry her best friend July 2017. Maria used to be a Registered Early Childhood Educator, before having her second child. She is now a SAHM, that is not paid for wearing many other professional hats. She is, and not limited to some of these professional positions: Doctor, Nurse, Nanny, Chef, Maid, Uber Driver, and so on.. When she isn't mothering or tending to all her other unlicensed professional positions, she loves writing and dancing. She is a previous ballroom and latin competitor. Some of her favourite "stuff" are, turtles/turtoises, the colour green (lime - forest), Laneige's Sleeping mask, make-up, and eating (food is her most favourite self-care aspect). Maria is also currently writing a book on her autobiography, which has been ongoing for the last few years, she's certain she'll eventually finish if she could just get over the hump of emotions attached to exploring oneself. As you read Maria's blogs, you'll get a feel of the true individual that she is, which can sometimes be a fine line of crazy and sweet, but not too sweet. Maria hopes you'll enjoy her blog as she does talking in her head to herself as her fingers skim through the letters on her keyboard. A message from Maria; I do not intend to use my writing to impose or tell you how motherhood should be done. I am no pro at this, and find as I share my wisdom from my experiences, that it shall uncover parts of your heart that find it relatable. My posts aren't always consistent in writing, but it is meant for you to to take in as it is. Find it humurous, sad, lonely, or helpful. Whatever it is you take from it, it only means one thing.. that I have found a place in your mind for those few minutes you dedicated to reading my crap. Thank you for being here, for giving me the chance to share my thoughts. Please return, and remember all written materials and photos on this site, is not to be taken without permission. xo, MM

    1. Thank you! Honestly the amount of moms ive met lately through my site..are the reasons for this. They inspire me. To be better to give myself credit for all that we do as moms. And that at the end of the day, we matter just as much as those we take care of. So this is for all the moms and this is for all of the moments we wanna take back for ourselves.

  1. That workout one is the one that gets me. I start bargaining with myself saying ok, I climbed a tree house, I chased a toddler, etc… I want to have a more purposeful goal of this. You are doing great by keeping a list. All the best to you, I know you can do it.

  2. This is such a great reminder to put ourselves first sometimes. Its so easy to get swamped with everything we do for the kids and forget about ourselves. Your list of goals is wonderful! I’ll be stealing a couple and making my own list.
    This post is very relatable. I think just about every mom could really benefit from it.

    1. Indeed. Thanks for stopping by and appreciating it. I mean we all have goals and wants and things we still continue to want to be aside from being a mom. So these are definitely important in any point in life.
