I woke up at 5:30am this Saturday morning… instead of checking Facebook, Instagram, or other apps on my iPhone, I opened up a new eBook “The Big 5 Guide to Girl! Power” by Dawniel Winningham.
This book inspired me to do something that I haven’t done in quite a while and that’s write down goals. My main goal in life as a Triplet Mother was to make sure the Peas (my five years old triplets) make it to Kindergarten. It’s the end of their first nine weeks period and it’s beyond time my goals got a makeover. In order to grow my business as a Triplet Momprenuer/ Life Coach, I need to make sure my own ducks are in a row.
Top of my list is not my favorite thing to do, but was definitely necessary… tackle household finances. Like Dawniel says, “If your bank account looks like temperature readings instead of a healthy balance, it’s YOUR fault! Get off your ASSets and do something!”…
So, I did just that. I opened up my old yahoo calendar that’s synced to my iPhone and updated it with current bills, due dates, and amounts, along with the Peas school activities (since anything can happen to that paper copy on the fridge). Yes, it was time consuming, but now I feel I can breathe easier! Plus, I shared the calendar with my husband, so he’s up to date with finances and kids too!
No, I didn’t get to tackle all of the “Big 5” key areas of life this morning, BUT with patience and persistence I will get there. Moment by moment, day by day, month by month, year by year… change will happen! Patterns make people do what they do… accept that it won’t happen in one day and MOVE forward with change!
