MOM-Negotiable

MOM-Negotiable

Self-care is non-negotiable. Funny while writing this my autocorrect changed non-negotiable to mom-negotiable. Self-care is a top priority when being a good mother. Motherhood is filled with a rollercoaster of emotions, not to mention sleepless nights. What is a nap? Moms spend so much time making sure everyone else is taken care of that they often neglect themselves. I think in order to be an amazing mother you need to take that extra time for yourself. I am not talking about a spa day. I am not talking about a weekend trip to the beach. We should take a little bit of time out of our day, every day, for ourselves. I know it can be hard to find time for yourself. Being a single mother of two with a full-time job, it’s really hard to find the time or the energy to take care of myself. You shouldn’t feel guilty or selfish for thinking of yourself, even waking up and extra 30 minutes in the morning before waking everyone else up could give yourself a little self-care. Drink your coffee in silence. Read a book. Watch an episode of The Real Housewives in silence. You don’t have to feel bad for taking a little time for yourself everyday. “Self-care isn’t selfish, it’s self-preserving.”. .
