Fred and I had one heck of a year. The one thing I learned is that even as a mom and wife you MUST maintain a sense of self and put yourself first. I lost myself for a long time in my role as a mom and wife and it affected my business and self-esteem in ways that I never imagined. Looking back I can’t believe that I fell into that role of THAT person; dependent, lost, depressed, unhappy. Everything that is the complete opposite of what is my norm. One thing I’m good at is pulling myself out of a funk and getting back to work. I started working out more, I went through my list of goals-both business and personal and started making my way through them. I looked at what was realistic and were goal’s I wanted to achieve and what I could push off as comparison goals. You know those things we add to our dream list because we see someone else succeeding and think we NEED to do them too.
So when I got to my list of things that the kids wanted to do I realized that my daughter had been
asking us to take her and my son to see the White House I thought DC in the Spring would be a great idea. My husband and I decided to keep this trip a secret from them and just drive down one day and surprise them. We found a great deal on a hotel in Chinatown which was amazing because we were in the heart of foodie land and lets not forget the shopping and other sites too, Everything was within walking distance so we saved a lot of time walking vs dealing with weekday traffic. There were a lot of schools there for the end of year trips so on top of the regular government business employees the tourist and schools that were visiting made driving OUT OF CONTROL! I’m glad we walked!
We are hitting the shores in June when school finishes. What are your summer plans
