It is SOOO important to take time out for YOU! Sometimes you feel guilty for leaving other responsibilities for later and as a parent you do miss your kids and family but, taking time for yourself is good for the soul. People will criticize you and some will even call you selfish. Who cares! You have to do what is right for you in your life. Their will always be someone behind you criticizing your every move. Not everyone will agree with your choices as we live in a damned if you do damned if you don’t society. TRUST ME, when you get out of your own way and allow yourself to stop worrying about being judged or worrying about everyone else but yourself…You will be a better mother, wife, partner, friend, better everything. Allow YOURSELF to be a priority in YOUR life.
This weekend I took time out for me. I turned off my phone & unplugged from the world. I allowed myself to really connect with the people that I was spending time with and gave them my full attention, without interruption. We only see each other a few times a year and we all have about 16 years of friendship & 13 children between us. These are rare friendships to find and it is always refreshing to the soul when we have quality girl time. I am heading back to my everyday life and responsibilities feeling renewed. Thanks for a great weekend ladies! you!
