work.run.mom stands for three components or values within myself that I use to define who I am. They are not capitalized because there is not one letter that is more superior to the other. There is not one part of the phrase that is better than the next or should receive more light than the next. The “work” part in my phrase is meant to reflect things that I do that are not fitness or mom related to better myself. They are mental rooms in my brain that I can sort pieces into so I don’t feel overwhelmed by all the things that I need to accomplish in my life.
I am an organized to a fault so putting these three characteristics within me keeps me grounded and moving forward. The word “work” to me means nothing in the literal sense. Nothing like going to my 9-5 Monday through Friday but more the mental and psychological (sometimes physical – that does not mean fitness) that I work on within myself. It is my list making component that stretches my wants and needs to find a better me. It isn’t always limited to be selfish for just me but most things in life start with everything that is happening within me. If you are still confused, let me just shine a little light on to what I am trying to accomplish with all of this jargon.
Work-mentally: Finding books, articles, or any other resources to help my brain stay mentally prepared for my life. Always working to mentally get me through the tough times and the weak points in my life without feeling overwhelmed or without hope.
Work-physiologically: Having physiological mindedness in self-examination, self-reflection and personal insight. Being mindful of the words I say, or don’t say and working to find the balance in all of that.
Work-physically (doesn’t mean fitness or job): Taking care of my body medically and always maintaining it like a well-oiled machine.
Sometimes people ask me what each component in my cute little online presence means and this is just a small portion of how I interpret what it means to me. I encourage you to find out what “work” needs to be done in your life and the resources you need to be happy and sustain your mental health. Should you need help, a beginning or just have questions about how I sustain mine, do not hesitate to reach out.
