Mindset: I work towards being my best self every day.
What will you do to show up as your best self today?

What does it really mean to ‘be your best self?’ My best self will not look the same as yours - and that is completely OK. No one gets to tell you what the ‘best you’ looks like - this is yours to discover and then embody. This week I am really looking at my role as a mom, so it makes sense for me to think about being my best self in that context as well. I know I am showing up as the best version (or at least a pretty darned good one) of me as a mom when I:

  • Don’t write check my a$$ can’t cash - in other words, I follow through with what I have said. If I say I am going to do something, whether it is a consequence, reward or a simple action, then I want to make every effort to make that happen. This is what feels right for me. Again, this may not be a part of your best self.
  • Resist the urge to react and instead choose to respond with intention and clarity - My best self doesn’t yell, fly off the handle and hmmmph around complaining about things.
  • Finally, my best ‘Mom Self’ has fun, laughs, plays and embraces the joy of my quirky, beautiful, amazing, surprising little monkey children!
Today, I will follow through, communicate with intention and clarity, and for the love of Pete I am going to laugh and have fun with my kids! I work towards being my best self every day.
