MOM DAIRY | I did something last week, something that I really needed and wanted! Each Day from Monday - Sunday I took 60 minutes for myself, I called it My week of Self Love (my sister refers to 2018 as her year of Self Love) I was keen to try it out!
It started with purchasing new facial products for myself, it’s probably been about 18 months that I’ve been using wipes, baby wash or anything in arms reach to clean my face! I went back to gym (my goal was 2 days in the week) and I did it! Hello, Endorphins! I got a hair cut and got rid of my greys, got a new underwear set, bought a book; a traditional book with pages and I started reading it, in bed with a glass of wine, I took the first step to facing my ever increasing anxiety head on and then ended the week going to church (we always go as a family) but I went alone and it was amazing for my soul! I listened to each and every word, I prayed, I sang, I reconnected and I cried, a lot! I was the perfect ending to the most perfect Self Love week for me!
And I know it may sound like it was a bit superficial, New Facial Products and Hairstyle? But, honestly, I’ve neglected myself for a long time and when I look in the mirror, well to be honest, I don’t really! New underwear you ask? I’ve been walking around in an old bra thats not even my size! Also, I’m 7kg’s heavier than I’ve ever been in my life, I pranced around in that new underwear set like I was the sexiest thing on earth and let me tell you, 7 kg heavier and all and my husbands eyebrows still shot up, I have giggle just thinking about it!! #DangGirl #YassQueen
The best thing of it all, my kids survived, my work survived, I still managed to get dinner on the table and I had the same amount of sleep!Some days are harder than others and I was lucky enough to have my week go according to plan, but on those days when I do not manage to get my 60 minutes but I’ll definitely be giving myself positive affirmations, a page or 2 from my book, and counting my blessings!
