Good Enough Mother Minute: Motivation Time! (PODCAST)

Good Enough Mother® - "Career" Rene

Hey all.. Happy… oh whatever day it is. I have been so busy here on the site, with my external writing commitments and some crazy out-of-the-blue opportunities (which you’ll be hearing about shortly) that sometimes I get a little burned out. That’s a bad place for GEM to be; that’s a bad place for any of us to be.

Someone emailed me the other day and asked how I stay motivated which is what led to today’s podcast. So lean back, pop in your ear buds and listen to today’s Good Enough Mother minute. Here are three things I use to stay on track. What do you do to keep your focus?

    Just in the nick of time…..gem must have a spy camera in my home. Just kidding…

    I completely agree and would only add that when I get overwhelmed I always try to think of things I am thankful for–and it always turns me around in an instant. It was a helluva day yesterday- I blew my proverbial gasket but all things considered not everyday is like that and when I went to sleep last night I thought of my many blessings so a bad day just seems insignificant.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
