I think I’m probably not alone when I say I often let myself fall to the bottom of my To Do List. Mamas and parents in general often do this because we have so many other things that must get done and so many fires to put out that we can’t handle one more thing.
Even taking care of ourselves.
So today I’m doing some good things for me. I’m currently getting my hair done and there’s just nothing better than that to make me feel good about life.
I’m also going to get more coffee. And paint my nails. And in between editing my book and playing with my babies this weekend, I’m going to tidy my office and find some furniture to paint. All of these activities will make me feel happiness in my heart and give me some breathing space.
I’m going to have a Ta Da List instead of a To Do List this weekend. I’m going to rest and replenish so I can continue caregiving for my Traveling Circus in all our fast-paced crazy glory.
Do you need to put yourself back on your list? What can you do to give yourself a break today?
Do it. You’ll feel better for taking good care of yourself–
