First: sending warm, supportive thoughts to those in need on the east coast. xo

I have Mondays all to myself.
I knew going into my new schedule that I’d seek to accomplish an astronomical amount of stuff on Mondays. I said the following out loud as much as possible: “I will not put freaky pressure on myself to work. I will also allow myself the freedom to enjoy the space and time.” It was like an affirmation chant that I desperately wanted to believe.
This is the first time in nearly three years — since Ruby was born — that I’ve had a regularly scheduled day to myself. And, really, there have only been two or three full days ever. So, it’s a change for us. A welcome shift that feels good to everyone involved.
Nikki. I am religious in making time for myself on my child-free days. I work from home too, so have to fit that in. But I almost ALWAYS go to the gym or for a fun. And must to many folks amusement, I often take myself out to a cafe for lunch. It is heaven to linger over a coffee and good book ALONE.
Whenever people ask me what I want as a gift I can never think of anything more precious as time alone. As a Mum it is so fortifying.
