Mom, you deserve it!

Often times we feel guilty about doing things for ourselves. As a single parent, I constantly deny myself to make sure that my children have what they need and want. One thing I believe we fail to realize is that we need to be taken care of too. 

To my fellow single moms out there, do something for yourself. Every now and something. I picked up a cute pair of shoes. I saw them online and KNEW I had to have them. It's the small things. 

Mother's Day Weekend - Recharge

Lately my job has had me super busy! Between traveling, long hours, and paper work galore, I've been so focused on doing a great job to prepare for the next level, that I've neglected myself.

When asked what I wanted for Mother's Day, I told my mom the best gift I could receive would be a getaway. I had the perfect scenario. I would go to the beach and listen to the ocean to reconnect with myself but the rain changed those plans for me. As we all know, everything happens for a reason and I got an even BETTER gift! I woke up, cooked breakfast (I almost burned the grits, lol) and got back in bed! It has been so long since I've gotten back in bed! It was heaven on earth and I didn't know what to do with myself. I binge watched my favorite home improvement shows and napped through out the day.

Later in the evening I thought about pulling out my laptop to work but I remembered I'm on vacation. RELAX. Work will be there Monday when I return.

Remember, in the workforce you're replaceable. They WILL hire someone else.

At home, you're irreplaceable. No one could ever take your place.

Take time to recharge for YOU! You deserve it.
