Love Yourself

Maybe you've noticed I haven't been blogging as much as usual? Probably not... but hey you deserve an explanation anyway because you are kind enough to stop by. Thank you!

Anyway, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately... thinking that I've kind of lost myself a little. It has happened slowly, one child at a time, one diaper at a time. Maybe this happens to a lot of moms? You get so wrapped up in caring for these sweet little children that you forget about yourself. Not that it's always a bad thing.

However, lately I've come to a point where it's not good anymore. I don't love myself as much as I should. I feel like it's rubbing off on those I care about most. So, what happens next?

I'm putting myself in time-out for a little while. I am still going to care for those sweeties of course! But, I am also going to care for me. I am going to re-think how I am spending my time, money, thoughts, etc. I am going to figure out what I really want and need and how to take care of me and my family the best I can in the 24 hours I am given each day.

So, until I get it all sorted out, I may not blog as much as I used to. Don't feel bad. I'll be back now and then. Hopefully, when I am out of time-out I'll be better than ever before and a more consistent blogger. Please just be patient with me and give me a little time to sort it all out. Fair enough? What do you do to take care of yourself?


  1. Hey friend! You absolutely need to take care of yourself! Love ya! Hang in there!

  2. Thanks, Alyson! I need the encouragement since I feel a little selfish. But, I think that is what I need to do to be a better wife, mother, and person.

  3. Assignment for the week: get yourself some mushrooms. And maybe take W and yourself for a walk on a warm(er) day.


Yay, You Made a Comment!
