Taking time for yourself

It’s important to take care of yourself …

How many times have you heard this?

Next question … How many times have you listened?

Just like you, I have heard this ten thousand times, probably more often than that … and I know it’s true, but I am more than guilty of not listening.

This aging process is not fun, nobody told me it was, but nobody told me what to really expect.  Being a woman is not easy (now I am not saying it’s easy being a man) and sometimes I feel like a crazy person.  This past year has been a tough year of learning for me.  I have learned that I cannot do nearly everything that I used to, and most importantly, that if I don’t take care of myself and take time to do things for myself … it’s not good, and it just turns out making things much harder.

This year I have made a promise to myself that …


With that said, I truly am taking time for myself, and although I still do extra work at home, I am limiting myself and only doing what is absolutely necessary.  I am learning to ask for help, learning to pace myself, and learning that a little relaxation and pampering can go a long way.

I know that each and every one of you deserves some time for yourself, and I know it’s hard … and I didn’t listen for years either, but … please do, please try … it makes a world of difference.

With all of that said, I am going to show you something that I am doing for myself this year … and I can’t even begin to tell you how relaxing it is.


I am back to taking nice long relaxing baths and I am adding this amazing tub soak and a bath bomb to each and every bath.


I had become a shower person, hop in the shower, get ready and go.  It serves the purpose, right?  You get clean, you smell good and you are ready for the day.  But … it’s not taking any time for yourself or giving yourself any relaxing time.


I cannot tell you how awesome it is to hit the tub and to soak and relax.  I have even been taking a great book in with me to enjoy the time more.


What’s better than smelling good, having smooth skin, having something relaxing time and getting a chance to read?  Wow, up until I have started doing this regularly, I can’t even tell you the last time I had a change to soak and read.

These products are all available in our store.  The bath bombs and tub soak are from Lend Me Some Sugar and I made the cards and tags with the Hunkydory Card kit which is also available in the store.


If you want to give a little gift and you do not have time to make any of these packages, cards or tags, we also have them pre-made and available in the store.  If you just need to grab a jar of tub soak and a bath bomb, we are fully stocked.

Remember, it’s very important to …
