No time to read: LISTEN (or watch) here as you commute, take a walk, or just unwind.
As you are gift searching, buying, unboxing, decorating, baking…..thinking a lot of others and giving (your time and your $$$), I want to send you a gentle reminder:
Make sure to ALSO think about yourself.
What do YOU need and want❓
How can YOU enjoy this season more❓
What can you do to SLOW down a little and just be present for all the joy, instead of all the rush and stress❓
I have to admit I was shopping on Black Friday….from the comfort of my living room and in my pajamas.
Here’s what I bought:
🌟A 60 minute massage (that I’m planning on MYSELF the last week of December sometime)
🌟Lodging to a ski weekend outside of Denver (with two amazing women friends for January)
🌟A new Kindle (for better wind-downs at night that DON’T include my phone or social media)
🌟A kids baking set (for my kiddos)
Does this mean I’m not caring or selfish because most of those things were for me? Nope. I care for others a LOT.
💫 And in order to care for those I love the best, I KNOW I need to care for myself also.💫
And I know this HAS to occur on a regular basis, not just on Black Friday.
I have a weekly half-day set aside for ME, but I’ve been noticing that the last month other things have been creeping in that time instead of that purposeful time I had blocked for myself (to play outside, read a good book, I sometimes get a pedicure…).
I can FEEL the difference when "my time" doesn't happen. I’m more up-tight, stressed, “wound-up” .
Ironically, doing things on my to-do list during that time isn’t actually making me feel better, I come out feeling WORSE.
So….I needed a reminder to myself, and thus I'm reminding you too:
🎯 Spending time (or some $$$) on yourself ISN’T selfish, it’s necessary. 🎯
And if you realize what you ACTUALLY need is to get out of the stress and rush cycle for good, book a free Balance Breakthrough Call.
I will help you decide if the the Motherhood Balanced 3-step method can get you there (not push you into it - promise).
"I am gifting this to myself." ❤️❤️❤️ actual recent client statement. She's only 1 session in, and I can tell she doesn't regret it.
WHAT is something YOU want to do or get for yourself?? I'd love to hear it!
