Hey There Carlene!
We would do anything for our beautiful kids, no matter their age. We sacrifice ourselves without even blinking an eye. Most times we don't even see it as sacrifice. It is simply who we are and what we do. But, it's really not simple.
Do you subscribe to the mindset of "If I do something for myself, I'm selfish?"
You've heard it hundreds of times. When you take care of YOU first, you are able to take better care of everyone else.
Instead of focusing on the time it takes for self-care, focus on finding self-love. Once you've got that, the rest will happen naturally.
A little gift from me to you this Mother's Day is the feature article I wrote below on self-care. Grab a cup of tea, coffee or whatever relaxes you and take it all in.
Wishing you and all the Mom's in your life many blessings this Mother's Day and every day.
