I wish…

A recurring theme keeps appearing in my life- people telling me that I need to take time for myself. This is something I’ve heard on and off but recently, well meaning, caring people have been gently insisting that I need to recharge, regroup and relax. (And since they don’t all know each other, that’s a signal to me that it’s time to listen.)

What’s your wish?

Happy Sunday!

I am the mother of 3 children (now almost all grown up!) in the Midwest. Writing helps me hold on to my sanity. I like to spend my free time reading, hanging out with friends and listening to music.

  1. Hi Kat, yep, I used to hear this all the time when I was caring for my husband all those years ago. I ignored it mostly, even thought I knew it was well intentioned, I just couldn’t figure out how I was supposed to do it. (I thought I had no choice because if I didn’t care for him, who would?). It is something I have learned to do over the years now, listening to your heart and body and soul, trusting how you are feeling. Time keeps passing, and then you start thinking, when will you have time for you? Enjoy the things you love, now, that is what life should be all about.
    Take care my friend.

    1. It’s hard when there are things that you know are important and you are used to putting everyone and everything else first but the people saying it now are pretty insistent so…. here I go. 🙂
