All about me:
Once you have a baby, it is all the sudden NOT about you anymore. I really did not have too much of a problem with that (minus not being able to run when I wanted - running is a HUGE stress relief for me), but I know people that have. Finding the balance is the hard part. Trying to find some time for yourself is hard when you have a kid, or two, or more! Sometimes I don't get to run, go shopping, or out with friends, but I know I will again one day when the boys are older. Right now, my family is the most important thing in my life and my boys are growing up way too fast to miss anything. Had you told me 5 years ago that a Friday and Saturday night at home with my boys would have been the best thing, I NEVER would have believed you. We have the most fun just hanging out as a family. So if you have little ones, I encourage you and challenge you to do one thing for self everyday. This could be something as little as locking the bathroom door so you can use the bathroom in peace! (If you have little ones - you know what I mean!) Even 1 minute of time to yourself helps. Jason sends me to to the grocery store alone a lot. I know what you are thinking, "Gee - what a guy!" Actually, I enjoy it and since I do not have children, I get to look at some of the other things there and I don't have to rush in and out. See folks, it is all about perspective and your attitude about things that come your way!
