Ask yourself, and be honest: when was the LAST time you did something JUST BECAUSE? I realized that even playing games with my kids, though I thoroughly enjoy it, is something I value because it’s good for the family and our relationships. There is a purpose to it greater than myself. My business with essential oils is something I absolutely LOVE and so I enjoy that work. But it’s still about more than just me having fun.
This week, snowed in, I realized that there is very little in my life that I do simply because I love it and it brings me joy ALONE. If you are a mom of littles, I’m pretty sure you get that. We can be stretched pretty thin during that season of life.
