Things can get quite crazy in the world of mommies, what with the many hats that we wear and the assortment of tasks we have to accomplish all at the same time. Unfortunately, not even the Energizer bunny can keep us “going, going, going…” all the time. Mommies get natural highs and feel euphoric with “small” successes as a well-cooked dinner polished off by the family, a ruckus-free trip to the grocery, or a hand scrawled “I love Mommy” note from the little one. But, there are times when Mommies too get the blahs – yes, we all do get it and nobody has to feel guilty about it.
To be able to go on doing what we do, we Mommies need our me-time too. No matter how busy your day is, be sure to set aside a few minutes as your designated me-time. Take this time to mentally and spiritually center yourself, clearing the clutter off your mind and lifting heavy loads from your heart. When you come out of your me-time, you will have a better disposition and outlook with which to face your daily challenges. The time that you take for yourself is actually a way for you to recharge so that there is more of you to share with those you love.
