“When was the last time you pampered yourself?” I asked myself this question and completely ran a blank. Between my 9 to 5 and home life I have not really taken any time for myself. Good old meaningful self love me time. Time that I can just relax my body and mind. Time to get pampered. I’d have to say that I am overdo. Am I floating lonely or is any body else in this same boat? I spend 10 hours of my days on a marketing grind at work, thinking up strategies, putting out fires, trying to execute against ridiculous time lines…blah, blah, blah. Then for AT LEAST 3 hours of the day I’m answering the same timeless sweet call “Mommy!”. Love my baby boy to pieces but omgeee! Then I’m trying to get in some genuine QT family time, followed by hubby time and then…it’s repeat time. Oh, and of course there are my few quick 10 minute breaks I use to chat it up with Jesus or escape into my next blog or YouTube concept.
Yep! That’s my life. Pretty awesome actually. But it’s definitely time for some pampering, after all…you can’t take care of anything or anyone else if you don’t take care of yourself first right?
Pampering yourself is a big part of self-care that easily gets lost in between being a mom, wife and building a career. Most women do these three things on overtime, pretty much all the time. So, something has to be done. I have got to schedule some time to love on myself. A massage, facial, spa treatment….something! So, this is my official mental note….it’s time to get pampered woman! And if you’re overdo too…that also goes for you! Do what you need to do in order to keep BEING YOU.
