It feels like Christmas this morning; the anticipation & excitement bubbly over and getting me out of bed before 6:00am. Yup...it's Girls Getaway Day!!!
Me and my BFF Heather are hitting the road, ditching our partners, our jobs, kids and cats and enjoying a little freedom for the next 36 hours. Can you tell I'm PUMPED!! I can't remember the last time I went away without kids or my husband and just hung out with my favourite lady.
To some it may sound like I'm running away, but to me, I'm heading in the right direction. Self-care, self-love and taking care of me are a priority...and should be for you too. Yes, we all have responsibilities...kids, work, spouses, pets, family....but what about you? Where do you fall on that never ending list of things to-do?
How can you take care of all those other items without taking care of you first? What good are you if you're tired, over worked, stressed, cranky and maybe even totally checked-out?
So in just a couple hours, Heather & I will be hitting the highway and enjoying some much needed R & R! EEEEK! Can you say hot tub, wine tastings, food & fun?!
Now that I'm done doing my little happy dance, there's one little thing I'd like you to do today...
Take a little time for you; for some self care. It doesn't have to be big or expensive...even just 15 minutes of uninterrupted time for you to enjoy one of your favourite things. Maybe relax with a quiet cup of tea, read a book, take a bath, go for a walk, eat a piece of cake without sharing, but whatever it is make it just for you!
