Whatever Wednesday 1-8-14 Taking time for YOU

         Hello Friends! When I woke up this morning I was in a funk. The day had just started off on the wrong foot, and honestly I didn't know what I was going to write about (which is why my post is later today than I wanted it to be.) I needed to get out my funk, it wasn't good for me or my family. Some days it seems easier to do than other days. We all have those days, where we just wish we could stay in bed but being a momma, that options isn't always an available one. So what do we do?
  
                                                         TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF!

         It doesn't matter who you are or what you do everyone needs some time to work on there self. We all need that time to refocus ourselves and collect our thoughts. To re-center and revision what we want. Or to just clear our minds and do something to make us feel better. Even if it is 10mins or 5mins. They say that exercising also helps to left your mood but, I am not a person who really likes to exercise. I like the thought of it but to actually do it? Not my thing! Depending on my mood one of my favorite things to do is put on music and dance around like no one is watching and sing my heart out! Other times a relaxing bath is in order (ha thanks to the polar vortex my bathtub pipes are frozen so no bath for me! Don't worry I have another shower so I'm not stinky!!)
      No matter what you chose to do read a book, yoga, a soak in the tub or your favorite movie. Taking the time for yourself can make a world of difference in you and the ones around you. My son had told me the one day that it seems like I am always mad and that really broke my heart. I'm not always mad, most of the time I am not even mad but I am frustrated, and to him there isn't a difference. In a child's eyes it looks the same. (Maybe because when I am mad or frustrated I make the same face??)I don't want my kids to look back and think that I was such a unhappy person, and I know that one day they will understand that can be difficult and stressful! That isn't an excuse. If I don't change it now my kids will pick it up too. They are like little sponges, ya know! So whoever you are, where ever you are remember that YOU ARE SPECIAL and DESERVE a little "me" time!Look at all we do on a daily basis!! Instead of counting all the things going wrong count all your blessings instead. You might be surprised about which list is bigger!! I hope you all have a great day and I hope that you take some time for yourself. I know I will be doing that tonight!! If you have any ideas or would like to give feedback comment below! I look forward to hearing from you!

  2. Good ideas! We moms give so much, but at times forget to give to ourselves. You can't pour from an empty vessel. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
