I see you. Working a job or two, raising a few babies that sometimes make it feel like you're actually raising wolves. (Raises both hands)
You're trying to do your best, from your marriage to your family budget. Maybe you're doing the Dave Ramsey thing too, and your next baby step victory is 18 months to 4 years away.
You're probably a proponent of self care, but likely find yourself calling the things that can be squeezed into your busy schedule "self care" and calling it good.
This is your reminder to make sure that you're taking the time and adding the things to your budget that make you feel human and that help you thrive.
Time for a dozen uninterrupted scrolls through Instagram is good, but a pass to the yoga studio you drive pass often is great.
Having the chance to read through that article on Facebook is good, but if you're a fellow book lover, don't forget how nice having a book in your hands feels.
Adding "take a shower" to your to-do list and actually doing it is the best. Getting your hair done when it's been 6 months, if it's your kinda thing, is also the best.
So whatever it is that brings you joy, fight for it. Save a few minutes or dollars and when you can make it happen, whatever self care means to you, I hope you're able to take a deep cleansing breath and enjoy it.
Treat yo self.
