I'm guilty of not doing self-care
1) Honestly, I love my time with kiddo and treasure my moments and have a hard time spending time away from her
2) It seems like I have so little time
3) I always feel guilty for not being there every non working moment
4) I feel guilty for spending money on myself for things that only benefit me
That said, I know I need "me" time to decompress and take care of myself.
I decided to not feel guilty about it anymore and branch out and do something for myself.
What did I do? Paint and Pinot. Actually, I skipped the pinot, I wanted my painting to turn out well. My BFF and I went together, had sushi and coke zero and painted pictures of our pups.
Mine is the one on the left. BFF's is the one on the right.
I REALLY enjoyed it. We had so much fun. I had a hard time convincing myself it was okay to spend $50 on myself for no benefit to my household. $40 for the painting class, $10 for sushi. It was worth it though.
As soon as I got home, kiddo said she wants the painting to hang in her room. I told her she can have it after she cleans up her room.
3 weeks later......
yeah, still waiting.
I'm going to do painting again soon though.
