There are days when words are not enough. Step up your game with actions.
Waiting until things fall apart might send you spinning in all different directions. Stay hunkered, doing what you know best. You are the mom!

It’s all you can do to stay afloat. You get the kids off to school with a few encouraging words. Only then to find yourself grasping for more encouraging words eight hours later in the pick up line.
Children are exhausting.
You don’t know if you are coming or if they are going. There are too many moving parts.
So let’s slow down for just a moment. You get to set the pace for the day.
Yesterday, I was off and running like a corporate mom. I had the morning of CEO duties at home; peanut butter sandwiches, breakfast ready, trash at the curb, and me dressed for the conference day.
After dropping the boys off at school, I joined morning traffic to travel 30 minutes to my destination.
When the day ended, I began to return home with two stops — the dry cleaners and the grocery store for some odd ‘n ends for dinner.
I rushed into the house just before six o’clock loaded down with 5 bags of groceries, clothes in plastic wrap from the dry cleaners, and my purse ripping my hair out as it slipped off my shoulder.
No one was there to greet me. Just an empty kitchen waiting for me to begin the banging of pots ‘n pans.
Tonight I had planned an easy dinner — spaghetti with green beans and fresh french bread. The water was filled in the pot as the clicking sound of the gas burner was turned on. The oven readied for the soon to be buttered bread.
During that whole time, not many words were shared. All of the work took action!
Life is that most of the time. When words are not enough, take A.I.M.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Take A.I.M.!
Action ignites motivation. Action keeps you moving forward.
Words are great to solidify the goal at hand. But you have to be willing to put the punch in your every day.
What do you need to do today that requires you to take A.I.M.?
- ACT – What do you need to act upon? What needs your attention? Combine words with actions!
- IGNITE – Keep the flame alive. What is your purpose of the day? What is your purpose in the moment?
- MOTIVATE – The more you take A.I.M., the greater the heart and mind motivation. You want to connect the mind and the heart. That keeps you going when you are exhausted and just doing the do.
The moments you have with your children are fleeting. Be intentional with your time and make the most of it.
Time is only on your side when you intentionally use the minutes to engage in your day.
This is the day to take A.I.M.!
“Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!”
