24 hours….do you know what 24 hours of ME time can do for your psyche and spirit?!?!? A LOT! I recently took 24 hours off of “life” and checked in to South Congress Hotel. I needed a creative space and some uninterrupted time to get the blog PERFECT and launched! I needed to write, be inspired, and just THINK!!! I asked Michael if he would mind (he is my BIGGEST supporter, BTW) if I took Sunday afternoon-Monday afternoon off of parenting and he said DO IT.
I can’t tell you what those 24 hours meant to me. I didn’t know how bad I needed it until I woke up the next morning. Making yourself a priority is one of the hardest things to take action on. The benefits were unreal, and when I came home we agreed that we should each “check out” more regularly. I HIGHLY encourage you to plan some glorious “me time” as soon as you can. There is something you have been putting off doing for yourself – I KNOW IT. Find that one thing that will make an impact and use your alone time to get it accomplished. And it is totally acceptable if you spend those 24 hours in bed binge watching a show or just catching up on sleep!
And if you can’t make it out of your house, lock yourself in your room and have everyone pretend you aren’t there. You will need noise cancelling headphones, and possibly a pizza delivery to your window. I beg you, make some time for you, because you are important!
