I love Fall. I love the start of new things… new school year, new sports season. I love the sights, smells and taste of Fall. But with all of that comes an even crazier schedule. I’m sure you guys understand completely. I have 3 kiddos… 10, 13 and 15. I figured when they were older life would be less busy, but it’s just a different type of busy now. I love it… I love that I get to work full time as a blogger… I love that I can work my schedule to see my kids receive awards and watch their games. But in the craziness of the Fall season I’m working really hard to make time for “me” moments.
Now my ideal place to have a “me” moment is at the beach. We currently live about an hour from the beach, so that’s not the easiest place to escape to, but there are ways I can feel like I’m at the beach. Taking time at the end of a long day for a relaxing soak in the tub with a coconut-vanilla candle lit and sounds of waves crashing playing on my iPad… it’s a close substitution.
As busy wives/moms, we need to have that time to recharge. We are givers by nature. We give of our time, our emotions, our creativity, and our love, and it’s important to take that time to recharge. And when we do, we have more to give too.
Taking a walk in the cool of the evening is always refreshing for me too. We’re finally starting to cool enough in the evenings to enjoy a walk.
Sometimes it’s enjoying a little treat for yourself while you’re waiting in the pickup line at school. At the first kiddo’s pickup, I usually get there about 10 minutes early. I love taking those few minutes to browse my phone for some creative inspiration. Enjoying a FiberOne® Streusel makes it a great “me” moment.
I love the strawberry streusel. It’s loaded with delicious strawberries.
Another way I love to have a “me” moment is enjoying a treat on a nice plate. I don’t know what it is about taking the time put your food on a nice plate, but you finally feel like you’re having a moment for yourself.
So what do you do to take a “me” moment?
