In the beginning of any intimate relationship the best gift you can offer another person is the investment of quality time together. – Sarah Ban Breathnach
Lately, I’ve been super stressed with studies, kids, and homelife in general. There are so many thoughts running through my mind and so many emotions happening at once and this quote brought me to an ‘aha’ moment. I need some time to myself. To spend time just being in my own company. To take a long walk with myself. To have lunch at the local cafe with myself. To sit down and thumb through a glossy magazine without feeling guilty that I’m not being productive. I need it. I owe it to myself to invest time with myself and so do you. It’s interesting how we make time for everyone else’s needs and wants but our own. But, the truth is taking care of our personal selves is the greatest service we can do for those around us.
