At the beginning of the year, I wrote that I was going to focus on myself more. That it was going to be the year of me and so far, it seems like I am on the right track! Self-care and me-time are things that moms (and dads) can often neglect and think that it isn’t important. I have learned that it is very important and I want to let you in on some of the things that I have been doing for myself!
Here is how I said I was going to focus on me:
- Take care of me
- Save money
- Build my blog
- Travel to somewhere I haven’t been
- Try something I haven’t tried
- Be kind
- Be happy
- Make 2016 the best year yet!
Here is what I have done:
I have been spending more time by myself and buying myself delicious coffee treats. I started grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I can do it kid-free. I also bought myself some new clothes and some new teeth!
Today, I tried something that I haven’t tried before. I got my first professional massage and it was quite invigorating and amazing. I can see why people enjoy them so much!
I have also booked my flight to somewhere that I have never been! I am taking my first ever mom-cation (kid-free vacation by myself). Well, almost by myself. I am taking my mom with me. We have never been on vacation together, just the two of us. Next month, I will be flying in LAX and spending 4 days and 3 nights in the LA area.
This is huge for me! I have always wanted to visit California, see the Pacific Ocean, go whale watching and see the Walk of Fame. So this trip is going to take care of all 4 of those bucket list items!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what else happens in 2016! The year of me!
