I'm Dating Myself
Frustration doesn’t even begin to explain the way I have been feeling. Overwhelmed with work, family, and just life in general. I feel like I have this weird fog over me, and it follows me everywhere. It doesn’t keep me from doing things, especially the things I NEED to do, but it does keep me from being FOCUSED and EXCITED to do them.
Tell me if this sounds familiar whether you’re a business owner or not…shoot even if you’re a stay at home mom, this must sound familiar…
Wake up early, get ready for work, drive in traffic to work.
You work all day, maybe up to 12 or more hours.
You’re away from home all those 12+ hours.
When you get home, you barely have time to strip your clothes off and slide into something comfy before someone asks you what’s for dinner.
You enter the kitchen begin your next shift as a cook. You cook dinner, everyone comes and gets their food, you serve yourself last. For my family and I, we eat dinner every night together. Dinner is done, has been eaten and now it’s time to clean up. Next is family time. We have been playing board and card games each night after dinner, even if it’s a quick game of Uno. It’s a lot of fun and I enjoy every minute of it. After a few games, you realize you need to throw some laundry in to wash, get ready for tomorrow and maybe, just maybe take a shower.
Now if you are a business owner like me, you may need to answer emails, respond to some text messages, schedule clients, the list goes on and on. Even if you’re not a business owner you may be someone who takes their work home and so a late night of computer work is what you’re facing.
I’m overwhelmed just writing this list and I haven’t even spent any time with my husband yet!
I take care of everyone else’s needs before my own. I mean as mom's and women in general that's what we do. Am I the only one in my family who does this, no, not by any many means. But sometimes it feels like it. I must learn that I am just as important as everyone else in my family.
When it comes to my business, my stylists, my family and my marriage, I am the most valuable asset. I have committed to spending more time with my children, dating my husband, so why don’t I set time to date myself? Great question!
What would dating myself do FOR me?
RECHARGE MY DRAINING ENERGY!
It would create the space I need to recharge and renew. It would clear my head and make me even more focused on what’s important.
