As moms, we give and give and give. We tend to take care of everyone else’s needs first. Well, with the new year, I’ve decided to start taking better care of me.
I’m trying to get rid of stuff I don’t need that gives me stress. And I’m also pledging to spend more time with my girls. Not my daughters, but my girlfriends. I forget how much I need my girls.
I recently went away for the weekend with three of my good friends and we had the BEST time. We walked on the beach, rode bikes, ate and yes, shopped. And would you believe we never once turned on the TV! If we were inside, we were talking or reading magazines and gabbing about what we were reading. We are close enough that we can even dig on each other and laugh about it. I had a fabulous time.
I recharged my batteries and by golly, I’m not going to feel guilty about it!
