With everything going on around us, it's hard sometimes to find time to steal away for a few minutes of alone time, time of reflection and rejuvenation. I had a very interesting discussion with a group of educated, successful women who run businesses, car pool like a pro, keep the family and others around them running like a well oiled machine; yet, what was most every time when listening to the varied stories that filled the room; continually, there was a disconnect between being able to take care of everyone and everything around them; however, when it came time for something like a pedicure or a few minutes of "me time" it was if it was important or not as important as other things that got done. I beg to differ. Women it is your obligation to practice self care. I don't mean hiding in the bathroom with a magazine hoping the knock and constant interruption will simply fade away.
