08 Jun The ONE magic thing that EVERY Mother NEEDS
What is the ONE magic thing that EVERY Mother NEEDS?!?!?
And, no, It is not necessarily coffee or wine!
It is simple, good, quality M.E. time!
Yes, we all need a little (or at times, a lot) of ME(eeee) time!
The best thing about M.E. time is that you can chose to do whatever suits you best at any particular time! Whether it is something as extravagant as a three week-long trip to East Asia (which a very good friend of mine just came back from…and which I am secretly jealous of but so very happy for her at the same time), a three day get away (which another very good friend of mine just came back from and which I am also jealous of but so very happy for her at the same time), a spa day, a quick manicure and pedicure, facial, massage, breakfast, coffee, gym session, etcetera, etcetera…the list just goes on and on!
And, the best part about it (for you and your hubby and children) is that you really do return to your family fully refreshed and recharged. It really is a win win situation!
M.E. time does not necessarily mean that you HAVE to spend time ALONE. You can chose to spend M.E. time with your spouse, Mom, sister, friend or you can also spend time M.E. time by yourself. The last few M.E. times I partook in was with other people; however, about two weeks ago, on a busy Saturday, I decided to slip away and enjoy a glorious breakfast on my OWN, 100% completely by MYSELF.
After breakfast I decided to go to a Zumba class! Can I just tell you how much I enjoyed myself?!?!?
And, I know, are you are wondering what M.E. actually stands for?!?!? But of course, it is Mummy Essentials!
