Peaceful Moments of Self Care

Finally, found a peaceful moment to take time to myself and write. I often push aside these moments to get other things done that seem more important. I teach, lecture, mentor and suggest the importance of self care, but so often neglect to take that time for myself.

I envy a friend of mine who takes time every morning to talk to her fairies and to sit and pray, send Reiki, and whatever else she needs to do to get her day started and centered. 

My day, begins with getting my husband and youngest child out of the house. Then I shower and get a cup of coffee. If my son has a later class and he's sleeping in, I take the time for myself to pull cards, read, talk to my friend(s), or meditate. But that often get pushed aside so I can get ahead of household chores. And with writing this, it sounds horrible that I do this. 

I work at a small car sales shop from noon to 4pm, then often I'm at my little metaphysical shop from a little after 4pm to 7pm. That's where I'm at now. It's after Christmas and the town is peaceful and slow. It will be this way for a couple weeks. Although it's busy at my "day job", I enjoy this bit of peace.

This gives me time to work on tax preparation - gathering all the paperwork that I may need, to surf the internet and locate new items to carry in the shop, to work on reading cards and the meanings of the runes, and today I was excited to receive the new issue of SageWoman magazine in the mail, so that gave me something else to do tonight. With everything digital now a days, I truly do enjoy getting an actual magazine that I can hold in my hands and turn the pages. I guess the librarian in me really comes out.

There are things that I have started to do, just for myself, to more or less make myself take a few minutes all to me. I often feel guilty doing these little selfish things, even though my family and husband are wonderfully supportive.  Maybe it's because I'm a Cancer, maybe it was my upbringing, maybe it's just me overthinking life.

I have finally joined a sisterhood, started hosting moon meditations in my shop, taking time to do more studying, and in general, some down time just crocheting. All this is what makes me ... well ... me. 

I'm still a mom, wife, secretary, shopowner and friend. But when I am able to take this time for myself, I am all those and so much more!

So remember this, when you are working through your New Year's resolutions for more exercise, eating healthy, or whatever it may be, please make sure to add a few minutes of self care.
