Part of doing this adventure challenge is because I feel a little lost in my own life; like I’m going through the motions. I’ve been so busy doing for everyone else I have sort of lost myself along the way.
I decided I needed to remedy that. I had an entire day to do nothing. I fought the guilt that I think probably most mothers struggle with at some point. I went to my art studio, cranked the music, took chocolates, trail running magazines, my computer, and kicked off my shoes. I caught up on some of my magazine reading. I painted until I wanted a break. I ate dark chocolate covered sea salted caramels, and just relished in being able to do nothing for anyone.
This Mom Vacation wasn’t long, but it was enough. I instantly woke the next day feeling like I found a little part of myself again. I wore a smile and felt like I recognized myself again. I looked forward to what the day had to offer.
It changed my perspective so much that I decided I need more “me” time. This should be a lot easier to accomplish now that my son has started back to school. Let the fun begin!
