Remember to take care of yourself.......I am writing this, as I am trying to do this for myself. I'm really trying to practice what I preach.....easier said then done. I've heard this told to me before and I remember rolling my eyes internally and thinking, um ok, you have no idea.
I think what people should explain is that this "you time" doesn't need to be some huge grand adventure. I kept thinking of some big thing I would go do for myself, and I would constantly shut it out, because in reality going to Vegas far far away from my children was never going to happen.
So I did something really little.....I bought a cheap pair of Big Sunglasses! In a Previous Post, I had mentioned I use to have a pretty awesome collection of Big sunglasses. It was part of who I was, part of my identity, I have a big head, so big sunglasses are great. So for $5 I purchased a ridiculously odd pair of floral print sunglasses. It felt goooooood. Oh yea, it was the littlest thing, nothing huge and it felt so good. I wanted to wear them, but it was 8pm so I would look kind of dumb. So I propped them on top of my head and went on my merry way, smile ear to ear, for $5 I got a piece of myself back.
