Dont Forget To Take Time Out For You!

As mothers we play so many different roles and most of us don't take time off that we deserve. Just think about it we play doctor, cook, chauffeur, teacher, lawyer, and the occasional referee as well.

I bet you can remember the last time you did a load of laundry, the last time one of you little ones gave you a hug or perhaps the last time one of your little ones did a little artwork on the wall (smile) but when was the last time you took time out for you?

It is very important to be sure to take time out for yourself. I made a vow awhile ago to be sure to take time for myself away from home. I have a loving husband and 4 children - ages 5, 13, 17 & 19 and I do something for myself monthly (sometimes more). Whether I am alone or with girlfriends I find the time that I spend dedicated to me to be priceless.

I love 'Girls Day out'! This is where you pal around with your friend or friends and just have fun (childless fun). Just imaging being able to drink an entire cup of tea or coffee before it gets cold or actually eating your entire meal without having to share it. It isn't selfish to carve out a little 'me time' - it is actually a great way to nurture yourself and a wonderful way to rejuvenate yourself as well.

You remember that saying? If mama' ain't happy, nobody is happy? Well, I tend to agree with it so I try to take time off when I can to replenish my mind, body and spirit. Usually after just a few hours out alone, I can be found cruising home in my van smiling and singing to the radio! I fell totally renewed, rejuvenated and ready to tackle just about ANYTHING (accept the laundry that might be screaming at me - I just yell back and tell it that I will handle it later).

Be sure to steal a few hours for yourself to get away. If for some reason you can't leave the house perhaps just take some quiet time for yourself after the children are in bed and treat yourself to a good book, a bubble bath a nice movie or anything else that you get enjoyment from.

Take care and have fun!
