The SHIFT

This beauty has taught me so much in the past 9 months (well actually way beyond that) that I ever imagined.

.

It’s called THE SHIFT.

.

Fellow Mommas. I get it. Momming can be trying. We don’t always want to do what they want us to do! Walk around in circles. Stop. Sit. Stand. Sway. Rock. Lol. WHY? Because we have “other things” on our minds that need to get done (or maybe don’t really need to get done but you want to get it done).

.

I’m grateful and THANK GOD every second it pops into my mind. *THE SHIFT*. Thankful that I have this opportunity to just STOP-LISTEN-FOCUS. Sometimes she just wants ME. JUST my presence. Even if my tummy is rumbling with hunger…or the washer buzzer just went off and you have laundry to fold and to put the clothes into the dryer….or you’ve had to pee for the last 20 minutes.

.

It can feel daunting. Exhausting. You look at the time and see how much time has past since you started this *nap time* process.

.

But eventually Momma. There is that SHIFT. The Moment when your brain stops running on overdrive and you idle. Your mind goes from racing with the tons of things I should and could be doing TO just APPRECIATING what’s in front of you.

.

Even when she passes out. You don’t move because NOW you’ve had that SHIFT. Now you’re appreciating this moment with your loved one because THAT is what’s important. That is what matters. Now you want time to slow down and for your child to stop growing so fast. THESE moments won’t last forever! These moments that took 20-30-60mins out of your day. That time is precious. It can’t be given back. Now we went from wanting time to hurry to wanting it to stand still.

.

Calm the mind. Welcome THE SHIFT. Embrace it. Love it. Cherish it.

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
