Do you ever put yourself first?

These days there are so many pressures in life. Work, appointments, household chores, kids, their activities, etc...the list goes on and on. I think women can sometimes feel the pressure more. There is more expectation to do it all...and perfectly.

I often wonder how many women, and men, put themselves first once in a while. I feel it is so important to do things for ourselves. To be kinda selfish once in a while. I think we need to feel special and do something just for us. Everyone needs a break from their recharge, not think about the rest of the world.

Me, I take a dance class. It's my one night a week to do something just for me. I love it.

When you have kids, mom is usually the last to get new clothes, shoes, etc... But I make sure to buy myself something new too. I feel better, more confident, when I look good :)

To live a happy life, I think balance is key. And it's okay to yourself first every once in a while!

  1. Writing used to be the thing I did for me... Now everybody expects me to do it and chides me when I don't. LOL

    But I suppose this summer I decided to walk--for me. Often I walk in the morning and then again at night with hubby, and sometimes it ends up being over 2 hours that day total. Which seems like an awful lot. But summer only lasts so long, and we rarely watch TV, so I justify it because it's not taking away time from anything else. (I think!)
