Self-care was one of those things I never really prioritized until I desperately needed it. It wasn’t until after Wyatt was born that I really started to make the effort to take care of myself. I think that women by nature give so much. We are often so busy caring for others needs that we suppress our own. Additionally, we are always thinking about what needs to be done or improved upon. I know for myself I am just as concerned with my family’s emotional needs as I am with their physical needs. I do this habitually, and I will keep obsessing over them until I reach a point of mental and physical exhaustion . It’s a difficult pattern to break- but as I soon learned, if I did not break the cycle of giving to the point of depletion, than the cycle would eventually break me.
Ambiance is EVERYTHING.
