It is normal for us to lose ourselves to some extent after we have had our children. We become so involved with their own lives and goals, that we can often lose track of our own. Oftentimes we forget, however, how important it is for us to still keep on track to our own aspirations in order to be held as role models to our children to accomplish the same. Focusing on our own motivation in a sense is equally as important as being there for them when they need us.
- Be sure to focus on your own goals in order to set a positive example for your child.
- It is important to realize that you are still a separate entity, and that your goals and dreams matter. Do not lose sight of who you are.
- Continue to do things that feed your soul such as listening to music and chasing your ambitions.
