You do it all, most of the time with no help.
You're there for your husband, the kids, the fur babies, the friends, etc. You can always be counted on.
You take care of everyone. Are you remembering to take care of the most important person in your life? You!?
Being a mom is life's toughest job. There are no instructions that come with the bundle of joy who's placed in your arms the moment s/he comes into this world.
Being a mom also requires that you take care of you. And no, this is not being selfish. Let me stop you there before you even think about it. Taking care of you is necessary.
You need down time – time to relax and recharge your batteries. Whether it's a bubble bath, snuggling up with a good book in your Perfect Pant, or having glass of wine while watching a great movie. It doesn't matter how you choose to go about it, all that matters is that you spend time doing something nice for yourself.
Taking care of you not only helps you feel rejuvenated, it helps you give the best of yourself to your loved ones, as well. When you feel great about you, others benefit from that feeling.
Make it a habit to do something thoughtful for yourself regularly, schedule it in your weekly calendar if you have to. Don't have enough time in the day, you say? Make time. Make it one of your priorities.
You deserve to feel your best. With so many loved ones constantly depending on you, you've got to make time to take care of you. It's not selfish to do so, it's selfish to not do so.
