Mama...you matter.

Sharing ways that I put me first.


After my first baby boy, I honestly forgot about me.


It was about him and him and him and him.


And guess who ran right into #postpartumdepression


Me.


So with my daughter, I have been more vocal about what I need and guess who is putting their needs and #selfcare first?


Me.


Each day I’m learning that I literally matter and if I’m not good mentally.


Then nothing is good.


There are 5 things that I have decided to do which are non-negotiable.


🤍 I am kind to myself. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy with our negative thoughts and false expectations.


Grace yourself.


🤍 Alone time


I must have alone time, so for me that looks like me getting up earlier while everyone is sleep.

Or once my kids are asleep I take advantage of the time when the house is super quiet.


I read my devotionals, pray, journal or even just cry.


🤍 Keep my hair, nails, and feet did. And I know we are all in the house but I’m finding cute and sexy loungewear and slippers or socks to wear around the house.


When I look good I feel good.


🤍 I make sure I buy myself something nice every month.

That doesn’t include food. 🥴


🤍 Take myself on a date.

I did this before being married and I do this now. Because I enjoy being with me for real.


What are some of the things you are doing for you that is non-negotiable?
