You know how a mom's "To Do" list is endless? And by this I mean that no matter how many things we moms (or, dare I say, even Super Moms) get done each day, the list is still there and still so long. In fact, it's always still GROWING. That's just life, right? And yeah, we can handle it. That's how we roll. We just keep getting it all done, and keep going and going. Moms are pretty awesome.
But here's my question today. Is there anything on that list that you PRIORITIZE, that you make sure you get done, like having a "playdate" with friends or time for hobbies, that is just for YOU? Just one thing? Even just once a week? For me, I won't lie, the answer is a pathetic no. Sure, I do things for myself every day like try to look decent and eat healthy food and get some sleep, but those are just basic survival things. And I can't say I manage them daily, ha! Nothing I prioritize for myself is a treat, like getting a pedicure, or making time for culture or friends. But seriously, even my dog gets most of these things prioritized on my "To Do" list, so why not me?
Now that I've become aware of this issue- after a mere 4.5 years of being a stay-at-home-mom, thank you very much - I think it's time to change my ways and try to make 1 thing on my list be for me. Just one thing. Once a week. How hard can that be? And I am pretty sure I'll be a better mom and person for doing it. Now I just have to figure out what that thing will be. I think it will probably be something that changes every week... Any suggestions are welcome!
What 1 nice thing a week do you do or wish you did for yourself?
