Great suggestions! Thank you!
Congratulations! I will try some of these ideas. I am in the same boat of caring for aging parents and still parenting my own children after 32 years.
I liked the ideas.
The note about :setting yourself up to fail. I think at times I do this.
Thanks for the great article
KIMGREENWELL AWESOME. IT'S GOOD WHEN WE WORK FOR THE LORD. BUT THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT ARTICLE
WE NEED TIME OUR FOR OURSELVES.
I loved this little blog. I remembered I started a scrap book about empowered women and men when I was feeling really low...I forgotten about that, I am going to dig it up. So glad you wrote this, so glad I read it.
I just read this and am going to print it out for my own "scrapbook". I love it!! I will be a mother of 4 in just a few short months, and while I'm excited for another baby, I'm dreading adding that chaos into my already overwhelmed world. So, I am taking these last few months and working on that control and well being that will not only make me healthier, but my family as well.
Great job and thank you for this!!
i loved this blog and im going to try some of the tips...
Thank you for sharing your experiences. I'm in a similar situation, and am finally learning to take time for myself.
I just found this article. Good one. I too set goals almost a year ago that are now routine and no longer tracked. It feels good have that progress. Congratulations on your progress.
I loved your article. I can relate to so much of what you say. WHat was particularly meaningful to me was you short and simple goals. You were able to articulate things that I want for myself but somehow have never been able to write down. I also love you action steps. Scheduling relax time early when you are able to enjoy it is a great suggestion, and you feel good scrapbook is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you for your article. We need to be reminded from time to time to take time for ourselves.
I loved your article. Thanks for sharing your experience. I love the idea of a scrapbook. I printed your article - yours will be the first page in my new scrapbook. God bless, Barb
Love the thought of a scrapbook. I've been wanting to try scrapbooking, but figuring out what to do with it has been daunting...I like the idea of making it a feel good book.
What a great motivational story. Congratulations to you, I hope I can do as well.
