Some food for thought!…
It was a quick text.. “should we go to the Confetti fields?” Within 24 hours the deal was done, flights booked, husband informed and babysitters in place!It was the very same week I seen a post by mamas scrapbook about self care and further to that, the hashtag #FEELTHEGUILTANDDOITANYWAY! So really I’ve got Anna to thank for the trip, though she won’t have a baldy who I am. You see, this flower field is just the beginning…..
I’ve now realised that yes, being a mum is my first gig. But you know what, being ME is just as important!! When my first child was born I wholeheartedly give my whole self to him but I think somewhere in the mix pieces of me started to slip away.
Sure…I’m not down for partying and throwing it back to my hay day. And goodness me I LOVE my kids with every inch of my soul.
But what I’m down for is some me time, self care and heck, some indulgence! I know I can be a better person and even a better mother, when I myself am fulfilled and recharged!
So go ahead, consciously look after yourself , have a little ‘me’ time! And as Anna says ‘feel the guilt and do it anyway!’
