My blog has been neglected lately. But I'm happy to say that that's because I, myself, haven't been. I've been working my booty off getting my divorce finalized, getting my house ready to go on the market, working a ton, taking care of kids... and taking care of... wait for it... MYSELF. I know... crazy right? That's actually a priority now. And I'm getting really good at it.
I learned a valuable lesson from self neglect. You can say whatever you want to your kids about loving themselves, but they're going to do what they see. And if you don't put yourself first and take proper care of yourself, physically and emotionally, there's a good chance they're going to mimic that pattern.
So, to all those moms out there, I'd like to say... "Screw Mothers Day!" Be good to yourself EVERY DAY. Your kids will be so much better for it. And so will you.
Big love to all you mammas out there!
