Sometimes as moms, we have to be a little selfish. We have to remember that in order for us to take care of those around us, we have to take care of ourselves first. To love ourselves first. Even busy moms need some “me” time. In my case, it’s getting up an hour earlier and going to the gym, or going for a run. I’m not the world’s greatest athlete, but doing these things for me makes me feel good, gives me strength and a sense of accomplishment. More often than not, I’m in a better mood and a better mami to my babies when I’ve taken some time for me.
Whether you are signing up for a half marathon, or a photography class, or just go to a weekly mani/pedi appointment, even indulging in a daily cup of coffee before everyone gets up in the morning, take care of yourself. Love yourself.
