|Stash Manicure is like a Candy shop, but sweeter!|
Hello there, I'm Michelle from L7 Quilt Co.. MSamm asked me to be a guest blogger and I feel like a kid in a candy store!!! LOL!
My post is about 'YOU' & 'TIME', as in 'making time for you'. I know, that you know - you have to make time for yourself. But sometimes you have to hear (read) someone say it to be reminded of it. In the hustle & bustle of this joyous, most wonderful time of the year...we are busy with work, family, volunteering, Christmas shopping, wrapping (and the list goes on)...it's easy to forget about YOU. Christmas is 2 (2 1/2) weeks away (no pressure...lol!), so if you need time, here are a few suggestions/reminders...
- If possible, take a work day off. It's Christmas! Give yourself a 'vacation' day. If you can do it - DO IT! Think of all the things you can cross of your list - or not. And if you have kids in school or day care...you know you'll have 'X' amount of hours to yourself.
- Can't take the whole day off? How about 1/2 a day? And if you have kids in day care, don't feel guilty about not picking them up early. Heck, you pay them every week...a few hours to shop or do what you want/need is worth every penny.
- You only have the weekends? Well, ask for some time...for example, see if your family/husband/kids will agree to not call on you for a set amount of time. 2 hours, 4 hours or the whole day...surely your family/friends will survive your absence...lol!
***If you are taking a 'ME' day, agree with everyone you are not be called on unless there is a real emergency. If they can't find this or that - that does not count as an emergency. They will have to improvise or just wait until you return. If possible...NO CELL PHONES!
You know that saying...'If momma ain't happy, nobody's happy'...IT'S TRUE! Whether it's 2 hours or the whole day, doing something for you to bring you inner peace is important. When you are happy/calm/relaxed, it radiates everyone around you.
It's the most wonderful time of the year...enjoy every moment!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
