TAKING TIME FOR ME.
Man, I really don’t take enough time for myself… I think as women we try so hard to take care of everyone else and make their lives easier that we don’t take the time to make sure that we are taken care of. I am so guilty of this. I always think that the time & money I would spend on myself could be helping someone else or something more important than me… My husband could use a new surprise pair of shoes, I could donate the money to a good cause, or so many other things. However let me tell you, when I do take the time to spend some time on myself, I feel better than ever. I am twice as productive, more positive, caring, everything. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY AND EVERY SECOND OF TIME.
I recently had the opportunity to go to Mindful Women Spa (blog). It was the most relaxing night of my life. I could clear my mind, relax, and have some time to think about myself, my life, and where I want to be. The atmosphere was amazing. It was so quaint and quiet. Relaxing wouldn’t even describe it. I felt as if I was meditating the entire time I was there… I received a facial and massage. Umm AMAZING would be an understatement.
Facials, oh facials… I had never had a facial before, and man let me tell you that is something that everyone needs done in their life, okay let’s be honest once a week if money were no object! I never break out, but I have been with this pregnancy and it cleared my skin right up! It felt absolutely amazing. At first when I sat there I was timid about someone rubbing my face, and then she started and it was heaven on earth! For the love! It was AMAZING!
Massages are just as amazing. I have had one before, my sweet husband bought it for me when we were dating and left it on my windshield for me to find. (So sweet right!?) I also had it at Mindful Women Spa. It is something that I will never forget. To me it is almost like an out of body experience. You are so relaxed and your muscles are so loose that it doesn’t seem like it should be real. The massage therapist was absolutely amazing. They also have Prenatal Massages. Usually when you are pregnant you have to have a massage on your side, not here! They have a foam pillow you put under you that has holes for your tummy and chest. Everyone I have talked to told me that it is something 100% necessary to do a couple weeks before you have the baby. If it is anything like the massage that I had last week, man it will be heavenly.
So what this post is all about is that we all need to take time for ourselves! We need to make sure that we are taken care of before we can take care of others. I promise you that if you take time for yourself, you will thank yourself forever, well at least until your life is crazy again!

You absolutely deserve time for just you! We just gave our moms facials for mothers day. I’ve never had one but you pretty much just swayed me! I have had a pregnancy massage with the table with the hole. I think I would have just paid them to take a nap on my stomach for an hour haha but then the massage is just an added bonus!
