Ready to boost your self esteem as a mom?
I remember a time in my life when my self esteem was low. Like super low. My twins were 2 years old and my oldest was 6 years old, we were living in a one bedroom apartment with my hubby. I just didn’t take care of myself, not in the way I looked and not health wise either.
I was living in a fog, unhappy, I mean I loved my family and everything but I was not happy with myself. Something I kept doing was comparing myself to other moms and wished I looked like this or that or had their life. I had low self esteem and sadly I didn’t really noticed it. But I knew I didn’t feel good about myself.
I started talking to myself in a nice way
I started looking at myself and felt pretty
I started dressing up and feeling good
I started putting on makeup and doing my hair
I started exercising and going out more. On date-nights or out shopping with my sisters
I was on top of the world and everyone noticed it!
Not that I did it for anyone. I did it for MYSELF. I want YOU to also feel good and increase your self esteem as a mom. So that you can be a better mom.
