Whether you are a single mom by choice or by circumstance there will come a time when you are ready to live the life of dreams. You have a burning desire to reach your goals and not only be a better mom but to be the best you. So how do you make your dreams a reality when you are constantly dealing with the demands and responsibilities of being a single mom? Below are 3 steps you can take right now to start living your best life.
1. Change Your Mindset: People are going to say what they want, think what they want, and do what they want the only person you have control over is you. So the first thing you need to do is change the way you think. You truly have to have a can do attitude. Once you start believing that you can be, do, have, and create the life you want you will be more willing to start to take action.
2. Have A Clear Vision & Plan: You have to be clear about what you want; as a single mom time is one thing that you don’t have a lot of and you want to be sure you are using your time wisely. You don’t want to waste time on things that are not getting you closer to your dreams and goals. So as a single mom you have to be clear about what it is you want to accomplish take the time to really think about where it is you want to be and what things you value most in life. Once you know what your values and priorities are you will find it much easier to set goals and devise a plan that are in line with those values.
3. Setup Your Support System: This may be the hardest step for single moms because a lot of time your friends and family may not be as supportive as you would like them to be; they may not understand what you are trying to do or even why you are trying to do it. However I can not stress enough the importance of forming a support system. Their are many good groups and online forums specifically for single moms. You may have find the support you need in a personal life coach. You will find this support system invaluable on those days when you feel like giving up; or when you just need someone to vent too or someone to give you the extra push you need to really go to the next level.
No matter how big or small your dreams or goals may be you deserve to live your best life. It is sometimes easy to become complacent and feel as though you can’t do anything to change your situation; but remember as a single mom you are one of the hardest, working people and their is no obstacle to big that you can’t overcome.
