Spending time alone shouldn’t be confused with a state of loneliness. It took me some time to realize that myself. We as women, spend so much time taking care of everyone else that we forget that we are important too. I have found that making time for me, has made me dig deep, recognize myself and really know myself again. Self Discovery.
When we think about making ourselves a priority we immediately feel guilty. We think of our responsibility to our children, our spouse and our families. Forgetting we can’t fully love or be there for anyone else unless we show up for ourselves. I love the quote “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” If we aren’t taking the time to love ourselves, how can we fully love others? Learning Balance.
It’s no science, when most of us get a new hair-do, or a new outfit, we feel amazing, we glow! For some of us it may be food (like me, lol) or a book, or a nice hot bath with 20 minutes of peace and quiet (also me)! “Me Time” is going to look and feel different to all of us, but the end result is we all become able to BREATHE! We are able to THINK! We are able to be our FULL selves. When we are able to think clearly and focus rather than react out of emotion or being overwhelmed, we are powerful!
When’s the last time you did something for the first time? When’s the last time you woke up and claimed a good day or positive attitude? When’s the last time you made time for you? This weeks challenge is getting back to you. Finding the time for you and being consistent in the fact that you deserve it! Let’s get back to us ladies!! THERE SHE GO!
