|Never to old to have lick the beaters!|
They all bring me so much happiness and enrich my soul.....but what about ME?
I really had to think about what I loved about this week and that was..... 'Me Time' (thanks Mummy Time for reminding me about this!). I am all about keeping it 'real' and will fully admit that I had a mini-meltdown to my husbo this week and wished for just an hour to read a book, a soak in the bath, or a night on the couch watching my favourite TV shows - instead of the constant demand with the sewing machine, washing machine and general chores!
Life works in mysterious ways because this week I hurt my back and sewing just aggravated it to the point where I was nearly in tears.....so I cut back from my sewing this week and relished in the 'me' time at any given moment.
I read nearly two books, took reign on the remote for all my favourite TV shows (I can't remember the last time I did this as I always sew at nights), had nanny naps while my darling daughter slept and didn't spend half as much time on the computer doing invoices, wholesale orders, FB....etc.
After nearly a week, I woke up this morning and felt liberated - my back felt better, my daughter is happier that Mummy is eager to get down and play with her and I had that skip back in my step.
'Me' time is SO important - especially for all those Mamas out there who have forgotten what to do for THEM. I know that earlier this week I couldn't remember what I used to do for 'me' time....my darling husbo had to remind me that I love reading - and two books later....I am smiling again!
So this week - take some time out for YOU even when the Mount Wash-Me is growing in your laundry, the house needs cleaning or you have a million orders to do.....
I promise you that you won't regret it. X
