I almost always feel guilty when I leave our boys to go somewhere. I know it's good for me, I guess it's just that natural mom guilt kicking in.
Taking time out to have time to myself is really important. I need that time to recharge my batteries and just do something for me. It's so easy for us to put other peoples' needs before our own and we can sometimes forget to prioritise our own needs. I don't feel guilty as I know it helps me relax, rebalance and come back to my family recharged :-)
Absolutely do- it's really hard to step away for time to myself.
I don't feel guilty at all. I understand that a tired, overwhelmed mommy isn't the best mommy for my children. I choose to live from my core which is a place of letting go of so many expectations and embracing acceptance. I am not perfect. I wear many hats. Therefore, I need time to myself to return as a refreshed warmhearted, loving parent.
