Go with gut instinct. I've learned to separate me, the Mom and me, the woman and me, the wife. For me, the woman, I find that re-discovering my own interests, exploring my creativity and listening to music soothes my soul. I reward myself with items I wouldn't normally buy for myself (but always secretly admired), especially the little girl in me, i.e. water guns, charm bracelot, expensive perfume, different style clothing, flowers, a Spa treatment, or female only retreats. I remind both my kids and spouse that I can't be of any long lasting use to them unless I have some quality "me" time. They were resistant, in the beginning, but are now very supportive. By taking charge of my life, I've reclaimed the "gavel" I unconsciously gave to them over me.
