I wear many hats in my life...wife, mom, daughter, sister, teacher, runner, friend, blogger, ambassador...but there have been times when some of the hats I've been wearing have come at a cost to others. I always strive to be the best at each thing that I do...which is a strength but can stretch me very thin leaving some of my most treasured hats looking tattered and worn. By striving to go further, faster, more I have found myself at times with little to give as a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend....This has caused me to look really hard at my goals...at what REALLY matters in these moments and if my actions are reflecting this.
The runner in me wants to do it all...run a sub 1:50 half, run another marathon, run all the races all the time...but the wife and mom in me wants to look back on these years and not see time I wish I could get back. I want my daughters to see what a healthy mom/woman looks like but I also want them to know without a doubt that the are a priority in my life. I want my husband to have a wife that is healthy and happy but I also want him to never doubt that he is #1! More than anything...above the prs and weight loss...I want my actions to reflect my heart's priorities.
Do you struggle to want it all? How do you make it all fit?
