December 25 Gift. What’s a gift you gave yourself this year that has kept on giving?
My life is full – in a good way. Just like most moms, I juggle many roles. We are an active family with full schedules -work/school/church/social/etc. That is why I value the (at least) 15 minutes a day that is mine to do with as I please. This gift was deliberate. I know that everyone (including my husband) has a full schedule, so I had to give myself “permission” to take this time to release. I am so glad that I did. I am a better woman for doing so.
This gift was all about self care. I think of it like the airplane oxygen mask directions. If I don’t “put the mask on myself first”/take care of myself, then I won’t be able to help anyone else. That is so true.
