Any ladies out there always put themselves last or at the bottom of your list of things to take care of? -
My question to you is WHY? ️️️
As I sit here sipping my coffee on this snowy Sunday morning, I’m thinking about what kept me from finally being selfish and taking time for me every morning. It’s not hard to figure what those things were...
kids, husband, grad school, job, cooking, cleaning, bath time, reading time, homework (for me and kids), birthday parties, deadlines, holiday gatherings, time, time, time, time, time, time, time...oh and guess what...more time. -
As a mom, my favorite thing that I used to say is that I don’t have time to workout. I don’t have TIME to meal prep. I don’t have TIME to take care of myself. —
MAKE THE DAMN TIME!
Sometimes we tell ourselves there’s no time, but honestly...when I started to make myself get up every morning, I realized that there was still time. Sometimes we just have to make it happen. —
YOU are worth it! If we don’t take time for ourselves then we can’t be the best mom or the best wife or the best friend or the best family member or the best person we can be for the day...we are just not our best if we don’t take care of ourselves. —
Now I wake up before everyone else every morning and read 10 pages of a book while I drink my preworkout, I do my workout, AND I shower before everyone else is awake. —-
That selfish time to myself sets the tone for my day and I’m ALWAYS happier for doing it! You will never regret taking care of yourself but you WILL regret not doing it.
