This is the first Monday of 2015, and so far I’ve been attempting to practice mindful nurturing. Breaking old habits will be challenging, especially since I’ve been terrible about drinking my water for several months now. In November I switched departments at work, and I find it even more difficult to maintain my water consumption. I’ve also faced issues with leftover junk food from holiday baking and making poor food choices while on breaks at work. I don’t like how I feel when I’ve eaten terribly, but I also feel too lazy to change that. Overall, I’m making mental notes of my problem areas so I can consciously change my habits.
We are also 5 days into my photo-a-day challenge, and so far I’ve made sure to snap pictures of myself and my children. Apparently I’m not only nurturing my inner photographer — I’m nurturing my children’s love of smiling for the camera! All 3 kids have been willing participants in the challenge. It’ll be interesting to see how each of us grows and changes over the year.
