It's so difficult to put yourself first when you are trying to run a household while teaching full time.
Well I have decided along with Tara and a few of her closest friends to do something for "Me' this year.
I started doing for "Me" over our Christmas Break..I started to "slow down!" Imagine that? During my break of 13 days I actually didn't get dressed ..yes you heard me..I stayed in my pajamas all day and I even stayed in them during dinner time. Funny thing is, no one asked me why I was still in my PJ's.
It felt good not having to figure out what to wear,not putting make up on,doing what I wanted to do! I watched television, took a nap here and there and I actually knitted! It felt great to "slow down!
Now mind you that might prove difficult in the days ahead when my youngest is starting her basketball season, and school is gearing up again. My goal for me at least once a month on the weekend is to have a pajama day and do what I love to do..be it watch the cooking shows, read a good book, knit, craft...you get the picture. Sure I could say get organized, weed out, lose weight, eat healthy..which by the way I am taking the 30 Day Challenge of having a green smoothie each day in January:http://simplegreensmoothies.com/3...slowing down allows us to enjoy our guilty pleasures from time to time.
What are you going to do for you this year?
