So this year, we have challenged you to take time out for the most important person in your world.
At home pedicures and new books to read
Lunches on your own for peace and quiet
Drinks out with the girls
A new outfit
It's time that you take for you, because you burn the midnight oil with overnight feedings and diaper changes, taking kids to summer camp and sports, play hostess to events at your home, engage with your spouse in adult conversation and banter.
At the end of the day, what is left for you?
When we burn the candle at both ends, we are often met with feeling run down, both physically and emotionally. We've all felt it...so let's stop the cycle, and engage in some self care!
I hope that over the past 12 months, you've learned how important you are. I hope that you've taken the time necessary to feed your soul, and recognized the value in taking that time off.
Whenever you're feeling overwhelmed or flustered, you likely need some time and space for yourself. Take it. And don't feel guilty or bad for doing so.
The best gift, afterall, that we can give our families is a well rounded and happy mom!
