Hello and welcome to week two of Taking Care of Mommy Monday.
This last week has been a long one, yet it went by so fast. And to be honest, I haven’t put much time into me.
(You can check out last week’s post here. I shared how I use a gelatin and milk mask to clean out my pores and save a ton of money on those expensive pore cleaning strips.)
There has just been so much going on.
Sound pretty familiar right? I’d bet that there are a lot of you mommy’s out there who have used that excuse a time or two.
I will say this, though. I did take a few minutes Saturday morning to pamper myself a bit. Just the usual face mask ritual. But taking that hour to pamper my face was much needed after a long week.
It wasn’t much, but it was something at least.
Oh! I almost forgot! I also spent a little money on making myself a little work space. I mean, it was only $40, but I spent it on something that made me happy for a change.
In order to set the Christmas tree up I had to move somethings out of the living room. (Most of it was my craft and wreath stuff.) After taking down the tree I realized that the corner it was in would be perfect for a little work area for me and my computer. So, of course I checked out Walmart.com and found the perfect little (and cheap) desk that would fit perfectly in the corner.
So now I have my own little corner of the house and I absolutely love it! I also feel a bit more motivated to open the computer and get some work done.
Even though I did have a lot going on this week and I didn’t put as much time into taking care of me as I had planned, at least I am aware of it now.
Six months ago I wasn’t even noticing when my tank was low and I needed to refuel and recharge. I was way to focused on making sure everyone else is happy, that I took the backburner.
Progress is being made, even if it is baby steps.
At least I am moving forward.
I have already decided to put more focus into myself this week and have a great post planned for next week. (Subscribe up top to stay in the loop!)
Please don’t forget mommy’s: In order to be the best mommy possible, we have to put ourselves first.
How have you been focusing more on yourself this week? I would love to connect with you in the comments (or any social media) and I am always on the lookout for new tips and tricks.
See you next week!
