To all my faithful readers, you will never imagine how much joy it brings me to write my blog again.
I have so much to share......
Our topic today is Me Time.....
Most of us take this for granted as we think that we don't need to rest or take time out for ourselves. We are focused on our lives, jobs, kids, husbands, friends, moms, dads, sisters, brothers.... and I could keep going.
I believe that staying focus on ones hustle is essential. Believe me when I'm caught up in my event planning, I eat, breath, live the said events until they are over. But once over, I have another, that's the job I signed up for and I love it. But, I have learned that Me Time is a must for me, and I will encourage anyone that has not tried it, to pencil it in to their agenda.
I am as busy as the next person, I'm a mom the busiest job there is in the world, a mompreneur, a part time worker, an event planner, a designer, a blogger and not to mention all the new projects I am working on.
In order to be at my full potential of focus, and creativity, My “Me time” is not negotiable. It's imperative to submerge yourself in something you love for a period of time and do just that. It's a disconnect from the rest of the world to recenter your thoughts.
Life is so short, we need to live every moment fully, and enjoy every little bit of it, however “cliché” that it may sound, we should take more time out for ourselves.
Me Time enhances creativity, health, attitude. This I am sure of, because it has done tremendous for me.
Three (3) of my most favorite things to do are :
- Meditation/Prayer at least 15 mns per day ( I also do meditation workshops)
- Tea and cookies and a good book 30 mns per day
- A glass of wine or two and a good movie ( at your convenience) I do it at least once a week.
What ever you feel will make the clock stop and create a moment of halt, of peace for you, do that!!!! Make time for it …...
Of course not to forget the me time, that include others, like clubbing or lunching with your girls, coffee with mom and much more .........These little activities remind you that YOU MATTER too.
Any time that has been lost, is just that lost..... we must always be researching the best parts of ourselves, we cannot find that part in the chaotic world of rushing, arguing, disputing, hating, gossiping, negativity, world unrest and much much more......
It's a new year, with new aspirations, find yours....
