Last August I wrote a blog post about saying YES to my family. My son was entering his last year of high school and I wanted to enjoy every moment before he left for college. I called it "The Year of Matthew." (If you didn't read that post, you can find it here.)
Of course, saying YES to my family meant saying NO to a lot of things. Today I'm sharing the results with you.
WHAT I SAID "NO" TO:
Saying NO gave me extra time (and energy!) for other things.
Here's what I did instead:
7. Baked more sugar cookies than I ever have in my entire life! (Well...until I broke my wrist!) We had so much fun decorating them!
8. Got inspiration for my new webinar: Upbeat Moms (Get an exclusive coupon here!)
This past year was full of enjoying the moment, but also taking a look back. I'm so thankful that God somehow enabled me to balance work and family. It's never easy, but so totally worth it.
If you have children still at home, please hear me - The days are long, but the years are SHORT! 😥 I don't know who first said that, but it's SO true. Find a way to prioritize your family because you'll blink and they'll be grown. (Go back and read this paragraph again!)
This is how I got the idea for Upbeat Moms. It's full of experienced moms who share their best tips for balancing work and family. I also interviewed young moms who are right in the middle of it! My guest experts talk about ALL stages of parenting - babies to toddlers to teens!
Best of all? The experts are honest and transparent. They're sharing their biggest mistakes and regrets so you can learn what not to do.
