HAPPY WEEKEND + A SIMPLE REMINDER

I’m really not sure where the week went, but I am happy it’s Friday.  How ’bout you?   I wanted to wish you all a relaxing weekend and remind you once again to do something for YOU.  If you have been part of this SOS Sisterhood for a while, you know that I harp on the importance of taking “ME TIME”.   Moms– I know this is a challenge for you that’s why I feel the need to constantly remind all of you.  I’m not a mom, but I’m a surrogate mama with plenty of people who depend on me and I know that when I get drained and depleted… I am no good to anyone.  I get easily flustered, frustrated, sassy, smart mouthed, weepy, whiny and flat out bitchy!  Not pretty!  Guys even need “me time”…. I was surprised recently by a special male follower who told me that this concept has transformed his life as well.  When we unplug, stop reading texts/emails/facebook comments, take a walk in nature, shut up the chatter in our heads and do something solely for ourselves and our own happiness, then we are able to be our best for everyone around us.  I plan to stay in my robe as long as I please tomorrow and read, then take a long walk alone and admire the flowers + trees.  I am reading 3 self-help/motivational books at the moment, but I’ll probably flip through a new fashion mag as well.  It may not sound very exciting or glamorous to you and that’s the beauty of “ME TIME”… who cares what other people think as long as it brings you peace, contentment and joy!

What will your “ME TIME” look like this weekend?

Even if it’s just fitting in a 30 minute bubble bath, please do it!  You deserve it and your loved ones will appreciate you for loving yourself enough to fill up your own love tank in order to show them more love.

Love, Tiff
