Happy Monday, friends!! I am seriously so pumped to start a new week. I love the feeling of a fresh start that Monday’s bring. Don’t get me wrong, I’m always left longing for more weekend time, but there’s something I love about the hustle and about getting back into our routine. Please tell me I’m not alone here. Tell me what part of your routine is “crucial” to getting your weekend started off right.
I don’t know about you, but routine gives me sanity as a mother and the hustle is what keeps me going personally. I’ve been slacking a little in both of these areas lately because I’ve been “too busy”.... isn’t it funny how we make ourselves “busy” yet it seems to be the time we are least productive?
So this morning, I said “no more”. After overcommitting myself in every area of my life for the last month, I woke up and said “today we start over”. You know how I started? Breakfast 👆🏼 Even though I’ve never been a breakfast person in my life, I know it’s important for Nix to start his day off with a full belly. Plus, I find that when I know I have to make time for cooking in the morning, I know I better get up on time 😅 Even if it’s something as simple as instant pancakes, I love making breakfast on a Monday morning because it gets us in routine and gives us 30 minutes of extra bonding time before school. Because if there’s one other thing I’ve learned about being “busy”, it’s that what “busy” really means is that I’m not actually being present as a mother, a business owner, or a friend.
So cheers to Monday! ☕️☕️ May your coffee cup be full, your pancakes fluffy, and your heart hopeful ❤️ Let’s get this week started 👊🏼
