That is so true, Lucky. Women need to remember that we can't be effective caregivers for the long run without first being our own caregivers. So vital!!!

I agree, "Me Time" is important so that we can refresh and take care of ourselves. Women are naturally the care-givers to others, even though there are men who do the same, but women often forget about their own self-value and their importance to not just their families, but to the society of "sisterhood."

I think if more women did take some "Me Time" they wouldn't be so hard on themselves. I believe being your own best friend is one of the healthiest things a woman can do for herself.

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

I think for me, it is a time to get rid of "clutter", not only in my house, but in my life, my mind, my heart and my soul. It is also a time for me to realize that I need to put ME first more often and not just tend to everyone else's needs.

I hope that you remember to take me time too, Lucky, because you will certainly need it with your increasingly hectic schedule. Take pics of your caladiums when they bloom. Maybe that can be our new page pic.

Whew! Tough question for me. In a month my job is going to be more hectic and I'm really going to miss having an extra day or two to spend with my hubby. But personally, it'll be time to squeeze in some "Spring Cleaning" and I usually plant some caladium bulbs in our flower beds and around the front of the house, and the fence line. Hmmm. Didn't realize I was so caladium crazy! LOL

What about you?

Spring is just a month away (thankfully) and it is a time of new beginnings all the world. Please share how you are going to make a new beginning in your life?
