As women, (sorry guys) we tend to put everyone and everything before ourselves. We work, we take care of our families, our homes, our friends, but we don’t stop and refill our tank! You wouldn’t let your car run out of gas so why do we let our gas run out?

I don’t have the answer to that but I do know we have to make that time for some selfcare.

Full transparency here. This past week has been hard. Not just stressful, but hard. The kind of hard that makes you want to throw in the towel. I knew I had to take some time for myself to decompress, but then the guilt set in.

What about my family, the shop, and my customers?

What if someone needs something?

However, this was way overdue and I made the time for a two-day getaway to recharge. In the mountains locally in Virginia to let my mind wander and refuel myself. It allowed me to slow down and allow my body time to breathe. I can’t stress enough how important this is. You don’t have to run off to the mountains as I did, but you can sit on the porch tonight and watch lightning bugs or finish that book you started over a month ago!

A big thank you to everyone that made it possible for me to get away and to my customers who gave me a few day’s grace! I’m recharged and ready for an amazing July!

Now go relax ya’ll!
