Total Mom Makeover: Week 1, Day 2

On Week 1, Day 2 of the Total Mom Makeover, you're supposed to look at your "should" list from Day 1 and use it as a springboard to come up with a vision for what you want for your life.  You're are supposed to be as descriptive as possible.  Here's mine:

My Vision
I am grateful for each moment.  I show and tell my husband and children daily that I love them.  Being a stay at home parent and maintaining our home blesses me and my family.  I  prepare healthy meals and exercise at the gym three times each week.  Commitments I make bring joy to our lives and the lives of others.   I wear stylish clothes, accessorize, and do my hair and makeup each morning.  I spend my free time on hobbies I enjoy and don't waste this precious time.

Again, I'll probably have to finesse this statement a bit, but I think it says what I want to say.  Luckily, some of this stuff I already do.  I have the meals and exercising down, but I need to work on the other areas.  Baby steps...

The next thing you're supposed to do is get some photos together that illustrate your vision.  Here are mine:

I started reading The Night Circus last night while I was at tae kwon do with Tom Thumb.  So far it is awesome!  Very Something Wicked This Way Comes!  Today I really need to get my act together and go out grocery shopping.  Holy cow we are down to the nitty gritty!  I barely was able to scrape together a lunch for Red.  

Here's to a great Tuesday!

I have been wanting to do something like this too. I might have to check her book out. My life is so busy right now that sometimes it just feels like a whirl of confusion. I need to plan better that's for sure. Thanks for sharing your journey and being an encouragement.
