It's a beautiful Sunday morning. I am still in bed, typing, sipping on coffee and watching a silly reality television show. This is the short hour or so that I have given to myself this week. It will end soon, and the day will begin. Making breakfast, getting kids ready for the day, feeding animals, cleaning the house, answering emails, preparing food for today's barbecue, and meeting the needs of my family. This hour is what I need as a woman, mother, and a wife, to rest and recharge.
Remember to find time for yourself, even if it doesn't come until Sunday and is only for an hour. Find time to relax, to unwind, meditate, rest, write, or just nap.
Parents in particular tend to go, go, go all day long. Doing for others, meeting the needs of their family, and working. That they tend to forget or neglect their own needs.
Take care of yourself, so that you can take care of those around you.
