When summer transitions into fall, which my daughter informed me officially happened Sunday the 22nd, I can almost feel my heart rate slow down and nerves relax. The cooler, crisper weather has that effect on me. Don’t get me wrong, I do not have a desire to live any more north than Georgia.. ever. I’m not trying to freeze myself. I have no problem admitting that I tend to be a rather uptight person. Between running my business from home, keeping house, getting the kids to and from everywhere, helping with homework, taking care of myself, making sure the kids bathe and eat, and breathing, I get a little overwhelmed sometimes.
When my first child was about 2 years old, I learned that “me time” was necessary and made me a better mom. While the first 10 minutes of “me time” didn’t always feel great because I felt so guilty for leaving my son so that I could have ‘me time’, it was the ensuing 50 minutes that changed my mood and my behavior towards myself and my family for the better.
Fast forward 12 years, 1 more child, 11 years of business growth, and general aging, – I barely remember what “me time” feels like. That’s why I’ve vowed to take ‘me time’ this Fall and this is how I’m going to do it!
