Ever notice how people wear “being busy” or “being a hot mess” as a badge of honor?  Ask them how they are doing and they are always so busy, so slammed, telling you what a hot mess they are.

Not how I want to be known!

Productive.
Focused.
Deliberate.
Balanced

I prefer these adjectives. ✨

Do I have a full a full schedule? Yes.
Do I have a lot going on? You bet.
Do I have a lot of commitments? Sure do.

But here’s the thing.  I take care of myself. I make myself a priority.  I don’t try to do everything at 100%, all of the time.  I set priorities for my week, my day.  I always make sure there is “me time” built into my schedule.

Those busy, running around with their hair on fire, hot mess people? They are going to say they don’t have any time for themselves. Here’s the thing:  You need to MAKE THE TIME and there is nothing wrong with making yourself a priority!

I know this:  When I feel better, am more relaxed, more happy, more rested, I’m a better (fill in the blank) to everybody else!  A better mom, a better wife, a better friend.

Let this resonate with you.  Taking care of yourself is NOT SELFISH.  It’s one of the best things you can do for those you love.
