Some time its necessary….. Its absolutely essential. Do you make the time for you? Do you even remember who the you is? As a parent espcailly a mother…. We become lost…consumed in the everyday and the sacrifices as mothers we feel duty bound to make. Im not suggesting ton abandon your duties ladies or forget those beautiful souls who depend and love on us. Yet sometimes its important to remember the woman you are. Yesterday, for the first time in like 5 years I took time to finish a second cup of coffee out on my porch, then take a long bubble bath and after that take the time to do my yoga. I pushed myself to forget the guilt. The guilt of being the mom to hand the babies over to the dads. To think and actually enjoy myself first. After all are these not the qualities we wish to instill in our children? I want my girls to remember that being a mother doesn’t mean sacrificing the amazing woman you are & that they matter. They are valid. We must remember to be true to are essence & always set the proper example.
All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
