It has taken years for me to learn to allow myself to take time to care for and love myself. Our culture thrives on being busy, applauding those who are the busiest and don’t slow down for anything or anyone -- especially themselves. But I want my kids to know a different way, and to feel fully supported in their needs to maintain daily balance.

I encourage them both to take the time they each need for those activities each day.
