I know that moms are supposed to be selfless and not selfish, always putting our children and others first. But, there comes a time when we have to slow down and make sure we are taking care of ourselves so we can give those who depend on us our best. For me, that time is NOW!
On Mother’s Day I published a post entitled, “Hey! What About Me?“, encouraging us not to neglect ourselves, thinking we have to wait until Mother’s Day to take care of ourselves. It’s time for me to practice what I preach.
I am also going to clean up my diet. So, this morning I am starting with some warm water and fresh lemon.
I am also quitting caffeine (in the form of Coke) cold turkey, which means good ‘ole H2O all day. The last hotel I visited had strawberry and lemon infused water in the lobby. I decided to try it at home.
This pitcher is about half full and I will work on drinking this all day today.
I realize, I’m worth it!
MommyWurkers, how are you taking care of yourself? Let’s encourage and motivate each other!
Until next time-
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (I Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV)
