Doing Something for Me

October 10, 2009

In all the hustle and bustle of life, from work to the kid's school and sports activities, to designing and volunteering, there are moments when I have to schedule some time for me. Being a mother and wife, many times the needs of my family are put before mine. A few weeks ago, my blogging friend Heather, announced a journal project that I just drooled over.... but my mind kept saying there are too many irons in my fire. I just don't have time... I just can't put one more thing on my plate....
Do other people do this? Or am I the only one that can sometimes feel guilty putting myself before others?
So I didn't sign up....
Then, I decided it was time to do something just for me. So I signed up for Heather's Journal Class, a little late, but I have already put together my cover and I am in love with it!
My life is beautiful and I am so blessed, so this is the perfect class to treat myself to so I can document just how I feel! Doing something as little as this has rejuvenated, inspired and made me feel so much better!
So friends, I hope you find some time for yourself. Carve some time out and really do something for you... you won't regret it!

First of all, love your cute header, and then your journal is so sweet. I agree, most of the time it's about everything and everyone else, I guess that's what being a woman demands, but oh, I love some "me time", cause without it it's hard to rejuvenate. Thanks again for your sweet support and comments during my give-away. So glad I'm having a chance to get to know you!

Your journal cover is lovely... I also just joined the class a couple days ago as I also thought I wouldn't get time to complete but I am doing it for me.... It is going to be my enjoyment for today also... I want to do a christmas one to display also so I need to get crackin.... Enjoy your creating... I certainly am going to and will not follow all the pages and do some of my own thing....
