Today is a Better Day

Monday, September 07, 2009

I was wiped yesterday, just plain ol' exhausted. So for today I sent the lil man to his dad's for the day and the SO and I had a pretty chit chat about some stuff that needed to change ASAP, and then I sent him away too for the day and I took care of myself by sitting and enjoying the quiet.

I've always been a person to enjoy alone time, despite my social butterfly nature. Lately I've not been taking what I need from the Jess Pot O' Resources, instead giving it away to everyone else. Yesterday was a real wake-up call for why that's a bad idea. Any day that I have to list the things that make me happy to be reminded that I have it good is not a fabulous day. Any day that I can only come up with 7 items of happy making is a warning sign of impending eruption of the Jess Volcano of Doom. Last time my personal Doom Volcano erupted I moved across country on the spur of the moment, failing to mention it to the BF of the time who was expecting me at his house...oops...Before that was a bar fight 'cause I didn't like that bikers comment or tone...

I have a history of making bad choices when I don't take a lil me time. As I've gotten older I make better choices. Sometimes I just need to be reminded that it isn't selfish to take care of myself; it's a necessity.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday's blog and to those lovely ladies that emailed me, you guys rock and sincerely made me feel supported! This child still needs the village.

Hugs and kisses to all!

    I need to have "ME" time also. I am fortunate that now I have lots of time for myself since my kids are grown, but before I used to make a "date" with myself. Put it on the calendar as a reoccurring date and keep it. I hope you have a relaxing time for yourself.

    As the old saying goes, "IF momma ain't happy no one is happy."
