You all everybody.
Is it asinine to declare a challenge - a challenge to yourself from yourself - too challenging?
I am struggling mightily with the self-care challenge. I did great last week to the great detriment of 1) household business and 2) sleep.
Why is it this hard? How can it be so impossible to grab five or ten or (I'm dreaming here) thirty minutes for myself each day? Yesterday, the only self-care I could get to was making sure I ate lunch. Today, I escaped to Whole Foods by myself and stood in the laundry and baby care aisle for a luxurious five minutes just standing and there and breathing and thinking about how it smells like my favorite health food store in San Marcos, Texas.
I need to get out more.
I'm kind of feeling all lost-cause-ish about my Month for Mama. It all seemed so much easier in theory. But maybe I'm truly making it harder than it has to be? I don't know. Just know that quiet here does not mean I've forfeited my radical challenge. I'm still working at it, even if every single day does end with me surveying the chaos with crazy eyes and muttering where exactly did today go?
