I’m on holidays this week and I’m outside enjoying this hot summer weather although I just finished saying to my dog Oliver that I feel a chill. Go figure it’s just about 30 degrees Celsius and I feel a chill.
Anyway, I made my second cup of coffee and grabbed a new magazine I picked up from Wal Mart, actually I picked up three. You know they have the three magazines for ten bucks at the cash out? Yup gets me all the time. Well I’m sitting here and I’m in complete serenity and bliss. Why?
Because today I am able to take time for myself and enjoy it. Years ago I always thought myself unworthy to take time for myself and was brought up with the notion of that being selfish or a “bad” thing to do. Took some getting use to but let me tell ya, I surely enjoy it!
It makes me a better person and a better spouse a better parent and friend. We all need time to ourselves. That is one thing I really encourage mums I speak with to do, take a daily time out for yourself especially to you young mummies out there! We all need a refuel, a re-charge a time to connect with ourselves and God.
When we keep doing and doing and doing, we get frustrated and irritated and life becomes a burden and truthfully it’s our own fault. I was like that and I’ll be honest I can get into that tail spin of crazy at times and I need to stop. Like this beautiful morning I’m given. I’m out in my backyard with my coffee, magazine and my dog Oliver. The birds are happily singing and I’m taking in the blessing of being able to rest.
I challenge you to make a time each day just for you. Go on try it, it’s so beneficial for our health and serenity and out relationships :)
Happy day to you my beautiful friends <3
