Sometimes life is crazy. Sometimes you need to step away and reset.

I recently had a board meeting over in Lake George. Now, was the meeting as relaxing as hanging by the lake on a lounge chair-no, but it was an amazing break from my every day. It was a lot of work, but it was different work. I got to be me without taking care of others, stopping what I’m doing to address some urgent toddler need, cook, clean or drive anywhere. It was bliss.

Remember, life is more than being “busy.” You have time for things that are priorities. You have time to read a book you enjoy, do a face mask, relax with a glass of wine, take a walk- it’s about setting aside time for you.

As much as it might see way too type A, put it in you calendar. Block out a specific time of day to read, relax, nap, work your home business- whatever it might be, put your things on the to do list too.

It’s not going to look the same for everyone- but being your own beautiful should be an important part of your life. You deserve it. You can’t pour from an empty cup and without you, nothing can happen… put yourself first.
