Are you a fun and energetic person? Here’s how your sanguine personality is a strength to your family! This is installment 2 of 4 this week where I’ll touch on all 4 personalities and the strengths they bring to motherhood.
If you are not the Fun + Energetic mom, but know someone who is, take the time to share this post with them to give them encouragement in their motherhood journey!
People, your kids included, enjoy being around you.
You love to have fun and bring energy and excitement into normal events. You are often found going the extra mile to make things special, pretty, or entertaining. Whether it’s a party, a play date, or even just a regular day at home, you find ways to bring in a bit more flair to break up the dullness.
You shine a light!
Do you forget to sleep, bathe, eat, relax, etc.? NO MORE. This tracker will help you consistently live within your limits so you have more love to give to your family.
Because you are extroverted and love being around others, you’ve learned to make them feel comfortable. Your children feel confident and happy around you and thrive under your undivided attention.
When you are at the top of your game, they feel like the most special person around.
The Fun + Energetic mom doesn’t stress over the past or worry about the future, they live fully in the present. Whereas other personalities are prone to anxiety and stress over thing outside their control, you are inherently optimistic and therefore bring encouragement to those around you.
You are a spirit raiser!
Since you are a social butterfly, you and your kids have many friends. Whether you have regular play dates, outings, or entertain often, your children are never lacking playmates and the adventure and excitement that childhood is made of.
Because of your “glass half full” mentality, you are an accomplished encourager. Always looking for the bright side of things gives your children the advantage of a positive, life-giving atmosphere.
You feel emotions strongly, but are able to release them and move on quickly. You may have sudden outbursts, but are fast to apologize and mend fences. You have an inherent need to please others and be loved so you work to create an atmosphere of harmony in your home.
Of all the personalities, the Fun + Energetic mom may struggle being a stay at home mom if she feels isolated. That said, since you care about how you look and dress, you will not likely neglect “self care.“
This will help you feel like “you” amidst the major changes motherhood brings. You’ll naturally continue finding ways to have fun (old and new) so you’ll take motherhood in stride.
The Fun + Energetic mother wants to dress her kids in cute outfits, schedule fun family photo shoots, and make sure the children have plenty of opportunity to do the fun stuff of life! This may become a struggle as the children get older and have more responsibilities, but when they are young it’s an awesome time for everyone!
Your people-loving and fun personality lends itself to physical touch and your children will be hugged, kissed, and cuddled to pieces which makes for a tight family bond.
You are loving.
You are present in the moment.
You help others to relax and have a good time.
You’re an encouragement to your family day in and day out.
“She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
She makes linen garments and sells them; she supplies the merchants with sashes.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at days to come.”
Proverbs 31: 20-22, 24-25
The Fun + Energetic Mom’s husband and children have richer and more adventurous lives because of the blessing she is in their household.
