The one thing that can be said about moms is that we are busy. Busy with kids. Busy with the house. Busy with our husbands. Busy with our careers.
Do you see something missing here? Where’s the time you devote to yourself?
My mission is to show you not only that you have the time and ability to spend on yourself and that you deserve it, but that doing so is the best thing you can do for your family. A happy mom helps produce happy kids and makes you the kind of woman your hubby wants to come home to every night, and that’s your goal, right?
So come along with me as I show you how to spend time for yourself, doing things by yourself that are fun, enriching and make you remember how special you are. I call them Dream Dates and I’ve written about them in my book 101 Dream Dates: How to Say I Love You to the Most Importrant Person in Your Life…You! I’ve adapted some of these dreams dates to fit the busy lifestyles of moms today. Anyone can do them…even you!
This issue’s Dream Date is one of the easiest and favorite ways to pamper yourself: The Bubble Bath. It may sound like an obvious thing to do, but I’ll bet you never think about luxuriating in a tub, given all the other obligations in your life. It’s time you do, because taking these few minutes out of your busy schedule is like refilling your emotional and spiritual gas tank. It’s a time to relax, to de-stress and remember what a great person and fabulous mom you really are. It’s a time to get away from it all and just…be.
Try it. You’ll be glad you did.
