When is it that we all of a sudden realize that our kids are growing up and won't need us forever? It's amazing how we all worry so much about them. Are they happy? Do we do enough for them? We care more about their happiness than our own. But, that's just normal right? That's all part of being a parent.
We make sacrifices to ensure they are happy and all is taken care of. But where do we fit in as a woman? Yes, we are the parents of these little people. We're also still individuals, aren't we?
Ever look in the mirror and all of a sudden wonder... "who is that?"... "who is this person I'm looking at?".
Don't get me wrong, I love being a mom.... but where did the woman go? We get so wrapped up in meals, laundry, homework, being taxi driver that we just forget who we are.
Why don't we take the advice that's given to us from day 1... take time for you. We've all heard it, haven't we. But, how many of us actually take that "me time"?
I would venture to guess that most of us don't. Then all of a sudden our kids are getting older and we can't remember what it is that we like to do. Afterall, it's been all about the kids for the past however many years.
I say we take a stand and reconnect with ourselves. Take even an hour this week to do something we like....something for just YOU!
