My Journey

http://theselfcareconsultant.com

I developed the practice of SelfCare about 5 years ago.   During that time, I was the agency director of a company that provided services to families who were in crisis.  I managed staff, budgets and business relationships.  It took a lot of time and energy but it was rewarding and I enjoyed it.  About 2 years later my husband and I discovered that we were expecting our first child and I became a stay at home mom.  I took my responsibility of caring for my family and home very seriously.  I took pride in my role as the nurturer and caregiver.  Being a wife and mother who was fully engaged and emotionally present gave me feelings of fulfillment and I felt like I was on top of my game.

The funny thing is I was one of those women who went into motherhood fully understanding the need and importance of selfcare…so I thought.  I went into it with a plan for “me time”.  In fact I’d plan to engage in “me time” once a week (or every 2 weeks…worst case scenario)!  It wasn’t until I took a bowl of cereal into the bathroom just so I could eat them before they got soggy that I realized that I had never implemented my plan of SelfCare.  …It wasn’t until my “me time” became me adding more hot water to the bath that my 3 year old had just finished…that I realized that selfcare has to be absolute and intentional.

It never occurred to me that the core of who I am was being severely neglected.  It’s interesting how subtle the role of being a wife and mother becomes all consuming…especially when you don’t implement a plan for selfcare.  SelfCare should never be viewed or treated as a practice that you don’t have time to enjoy.  SelfCare should be embraced and respected as a practice of self investment that improves your quality of life…because it will.
