I’m a hypocrite…(Well, we all are if we get honest with ourselves)…I don’t practice what I preach….I’m forever telling other women, my friends, my patients, and my clients that as women we HAVE to take care of ourselves before we can take care of anyone else. We have to make time for us. I haven’t done that. I’m guilty of focusing on everything else in my crazy busy life. Having two full time jobs that require my full attention at both of them and a husband and son, that need my attention too, it all gets a bit overwhelming.
So…I’m taking a break…for me…with me!!! I’m going on a weekend away by myself and I’m so excited!! I’ve never done that before and I think it is going to be so awesome! When I first started planning it I was trying to figure out where to go and what to do, but then I realized, I don’t want to do a lot of activities…I want some time to myself, to reflect and contemplate on myself. Yes, I’m still working in a massage, relaxation techniques, and eating a few nice places, of course, but for the most part it’s going to be me and my camera and some nature thrown in for good measure (with bug spray and epipen too lol). I probably won’t be “off the grid” so to speak, I’m too social to do that. I have never really spent much time alone since I have been an adult, so I’ll probably be calling my best friend a lot while I’m away, but I am planning on shutting off the phone for a few hours at a time and have some quite time for me!!
So from August 12 after work until the 14th, its me time! What are your thoughts on this?
