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 motherhood 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 get a moment to myself to eat them before they got soggy that I realized that I had never implemented my plan of SelfCare. …It wasn’t until I added hot water to the bath that my 3 year old had just finished…that I realized that had failed miserable at my attempt to implement selfcare!
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.
