I think I'm finally letting go and giving myself a break. Accepting that some days if I just get a load of laundry washed and dried and feed the my family then that's a job well done!
My biggest priority is loving the babes, loving my man and loving my God. Being a ma is undoubtedly the most difficult thing I've ever had to do and it's almost impossible if I'm letting my bucket of care get empty. I don't need much, no spa days, expensive shoes, or a weekend away (although, now I think about that... a spa would not be turned down! 😉) but fifteen minutes alone to read, a chance to stretch-and without a child hanging off my back!, flowers here and there, a good flat white and a slab of cake, time to create something for fun, a letter in the post... all things that remind me I'm me and not just a mother and slave to these wonderful kids! If any of these things are dotted throughout my week then I find it so much easier to be generous and patient, loving and present as a mother.
What helps you to feel like a better kind of you? Do you find you're prioritising a level of self care?
