Just as the holidays are in full out mode, I decided that I needed to take some time for myself. Normally, I have a “Me” day where I pamper myself with a massage or something nice just for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t have one last month and it felt a bit weird. So I decided to go for a “recalibration retreat.” I just needed to shift somethings back into place. But, I couldn’t leave without a dose of mom guilt trailing me behind.
Can anyone else relate?
Have you been caught up doing everything that the month ran out before you could do something for you? Yeah, that tends to happen. Even to those of us with a planner. I want to reassure you that it’s okay. You have time today to think of yourself. It doesn’t have to be big. Simple is great too.
There are so many ways that you and I could have made some time for ourselves. The choice is up to us. Do we choose us do we choose not to take care of us? Don’t stop with just this list. I’m sure there are more.
What are you doing to make yourself a priority?
Drop them in the comments.
Before the holidays are over, I challenge you to pick a day to celebrate you. I want you to celebrate all that you have overcome and endured. To celebrate the strength you have gained. To celebrate the road that you have up ahead. You have the choice to prioritize you.

Love it! Each month I try to pick a day to prioritize myself and stick to it. You’re absolutely right, self care doesn’t always have to be big or long, the simple things count and make a difference. I’m going to celebrate myself this Saturday.

Hey I love it! I remember in January when you had introduced your self-care jar filled with activities. I thought that was such an awesome idea. Yes the self-care becomes crucial as a mom because you are constantly working on everyone else’s need. Yes congratulations on celebrating you this weekend. You definitely deserve it and you have done so much.
