It seems like, with so many forms of social media, we often hear a lot of the negatives. Life is hard and dangerous and people are bad. So when I come across a company that wants to honestly do good and inspire and uplift other women, I’m all about it. You guys know that I am a brand ambassador for Lean Cuisine and I am super proud to be one. Last time I talked about weighing what matters. So often we put so much pressure to have that “right” number on the scale. If it’s a couple pounds off we feel like we’ve failed. But that’s so not true! Life is about so much more than that number on the scale! It is important to lead a healthy lifestyle and to take care of yourself and your body, but letting a number on the scale determine your worth is not what we should be doing. We want to weigh what really matters – YOU! And all of your accomplishments! YOU are worth it! Today I wanted to share about a woman whose hard work often goes unnoticed. Who is always willing to help me out, take care of my kids when I need it, and has so much love to go around, it’s inspirational. And I’m blessed enough to call her my momma! When Lean Cuisine asked me to share about a woman in my life who is phenomenal, she popped right into my head. She loves her family and expresses that in ways that we can see and also very often behind the scenes. Even though all her kids are adults, she takes care of each one of us, making sure we are still all good. She loves her grand babies and is a constant help to me and my sister-in-law. When I was younger I had no idea what she did for us. I am pretty sure I took most of it for granted. Now that I’m older and have kids I can see more of the sacrifices she made for us. Like getting up at 4:00 am to work so she could be done with her work by the time we woke up. Like making financial sacrifices with my dad so we could attend private school and play club sports. She is always encouraging and uplifting and if I’m half the woman she is I will call it a success.
Thank you, Momma, for being so great and setting such an amazing (albeit high!) example. I love you! Lean Cuisine wants to help recognize all the things that women do that go unnoticed. We want you to join in! Who inspires you? What woman pushes you to be better and sets a great example? Make sure they know just how fabulous they are!
