I also reflected on how I can keep myself from another near meltdown, and from resenting my spouse and my kids. How I can prioritize self-care and me-time more, shoving my stingy ways to the background to save my sanity. My plan? Get a babysitter a few hours a week so I can get more work done without having to mind the kids or use screen time to get an article pumped out. Get a half or full day to myself at least once or twice a month. Get a sitter and have a date with hubby once a month. And get a full weekend to myself at least once a year. I think these are practical and achievable goals, and you're all responsible for holding me to them! HA!
How about you? Have you ever taken the back seat to life and those you love? How do you get in your me-time and re-energize? Share in a comment below - we can all use some fresh ideas!!!
In the meantime, Happy Friggin' Holidays from my family to yours!!! #Blessed
