What is this you say? Give yourself a break? I guess I should take my own advice on this one. Our lives get so full that we really forget about the things that matter the most. I love writing, it gives me a sense of escape from all the world has to throw at me. I am sure so many of you have busy lives and don’t know which way to turn sometimes. My household consists of my 3 girls, my hubby, 2 dogs, and a cat. I stay at home to be a learning coach for my youngest as she does online school. She also has a disability so I make due with what I have. I don’t know about any of you but I get so overwhelmed and feel like my head is going to pop off sometimes. How do we take time for ourselves when the time isn’t on our side or so it seems? I am slowly learning that what I am doing just isn’t working so I need to figure something else out. I am thinking maybe writing out a schedule but then I think schedules tend to change. I do believe taking time for yourself is imperative, you can get so hung up on things you may get depressed which can be a serious situation as well. Life is way to short to be constantly wishing for time instead of giving yourself time. In today’s world, communication doesn’t seem to be as important the way it used to be. No one calls anyone anymore so instead, we give a text message. Sometimes we need to stop what we are doing and look around us just to see what we are actually missing. Take a walk if you need to, sit outside and have a cup of coffee. Do whatever makes you happy even if it’s just for a few minutes. We all need a little rejuvenating sometimes. Ask friends or family to dog sit/babysit for you while you take a little time for yourself. Look at it like a job you work 8 hours a day usually, they give lunch and 2 breaks. Let yourself be free for a while and spend more time on you!
