I am literally sitting at my computer right now blasting Hilary Duff…and I have a cold! ;) I feel like I’ve been going non-stop, and I’m getting to that bad place where I am forgetting to “come up for air” as my mom would say. ;) Between running a business (with 11 team members) and being a wife and mom…the demands just don’t stop. And I have the hardest time saying NO, especially since I love my life so much and all the things that continue to roll out! ;)
I have to be careful of this. I’ll be the first to tell you, I’ve dealt with hardcore burnout in the past (full blog post on that coming soon). It’s just SO hard because I LOVE my job so much and feel like I am missing out or NOT doing enough when I am away. I am one of those “all or nothing” kind of people, and it can be REALLY amazing but also toxic if I don’t keep a cap on things. Luckily I’ve set my own office hours to 5 AM – 1 PM (usually stick to this 85% of the time), and I stay 95% unplugged on weekends aside from my Instagram stories (that’s the missing 5%). Having an amazing team and support system has been a game-changer. I seriously need to share a blog post on this soon!
So, I originally came up with the concept to make this DIY Pink Heart Robe as a Mother’s Day project OR a super inexpensive Bachlorette Party / Spa Party or Baby Shower (pack in hospital bag) idea!! But, instead, I decided to encourage every single one of you who comes to this blog to not run yourself ragged 24/7! If you’re looking for a sign, THIS is it! ;)
So even if you don’t want to make a DIY Heart Robe, that’s okay. You don’t actually need a robe to take a break or some “me time”. All you have to do is admit to yourself that you do too much, think about what makes YOU happy, and put those things on your calendar and schedule it. Write it in sharpie so you don’t stand yourself up on your own “me date”.
P.S. Did I mention how amazingly easy this is to make?!?! I couldn’t find a heart patch that had the “right” colors and shape of a heart. I know, I am so particular! ;) So as an alternative, I found iron on patch material and cut it into the shape of a heart and ironed it on. Aside from ordering the material, it literally took 4 minutes to complete the project! P.S.S. This robe from Bare Necessities is SO soft and the perfect shade of pink. In love!
Crossing my fingers and toes that you schedule some me time! I promise I will too!!
