1. Continue to be at war feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, stressed, time-poor and simply living to exist
2. Give myself some credit for what I have done and do and show myself some self-love and self-care and take back control
So with my white tissue waving high above my head signally peace and time out to the universe, I put my own needs first. Yep, it was scary, I was afraid of what others would think, what my mum would say…And the mum guilt was enormous.
But here is the thing once I put myself before my kids, hubby, cats, dogs, bird (you know the drill even the household plants get better attention than you) I was a better mum, enjoyed my hubby and our time together more, was more productive at work, found it easier to save money, my health improved 10 fold, I was feeling so happy and at peace and…I started to remember how good it felt to be me!
With renewed confidence, higher self-esteem and self-worth and greater amounts of energy, I started pursuing my passions and achieving long-held goals and dreams.
Are you in need to taking time for self-care and self-love?
