Lately I have been really trying to keep up with my level of self-care. I was having a conversation with a friend, who told me that I really need to try to do more of it (or do it at all because I don’t). I thought about it and she is right, I don’t really do a lot for myself, and I should definitely start.
As we go through life and its many stages (adulthood, dating, marriage, children) it’s so easy to wish that we were back to the “good old days” when we are hit with rough times or life just becomes too “adult” for us to handle. I know I have experienced this several times (I mean, who hasn’t?! Lol).
At this very moment in life, I am a mother to an 18 month old, and a wife of 3 years. My time and energy is demanded at every turn and I have a ton of new responsibilities and guidelines to live by, rather than when I was in college. One thing that I am not ashamed to admit that I struggle with, is carving out the time for myself. You can read plenty of articles and blog posts about how ‘me-time’ is needed and required, but how do you find the time? Here lies my conundrum.
