As mothers, wives, sisters and career women, we tend to always rush through everything just to get it done! We forget that sometimes the roles we play are only a part of who we really are.
I go through life and sometimes forget to slow down. We start out as girls, grow into women. Then we become wives, mothers, career women etc. and somewhere in between we forget about feeding our own souls.
Now, don’t get me wrong, all of the roles I play are what me happy and fulfilled but I think sometimes I neglect myself because I am so busy maintaining and meeting my commitments. It’s important to take time out for ourselves and just unwind. We forget that our sanity is imperative to how we feel, act and perform. I was thinking about this today as I was just so exhausted by the daily work of teaching and caring for my daughter, daily duties of getting my businesses to the next level, maintaining and improving my marriage and the list goes on!
I realized that I have to make a point to take time out for myself otherwise I’m just going to be a hot mess. At the point I came to this realization, I told my hubby to watch my daughter and guess what? I left and went to the nail salon by myself. I got the best manicure and pedicure package and it was awesome. Matter of fact, I am going to do it more often, next time might just go shopping by myself! Case in point, take time out for yourself! You deserve it.
