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.”
