About Taking Back Monday

As a stay at home mom, I constantly find myself dreading Mondays (as most people do).  Gone is my help, my companion, my adult conversation and here I am, back at it – wondering where to go and what to do, solely meeting the demands of two little children all day long again.  And again.  And again – until Friday comes.  That dreaded feeling of Monday approaching used to send me into a tailspin.  Then I decided to reclaim it.  To escape from the agony of it and dive into a new era.  One where I spend some time focusing on taking care of me.  Now I find myself somewhere in between – a grey space.  Taking Back Monday is about breaking free from the mundane – changing things up so that things feel more doable.  For me, this has become about self-care, something I have to really work hard at making time and space for.  But, I am telling you friends – the investment is more than worth it!

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

-Maya Angelou
