Life ...

    Over the last few weeks upon talking with many of my followers and fans, I asked each and everyone, What do you want to see more of on the blog. 9 out of 10 people said that they wanted to know more about me, and my daily, weekly, and monthly musings on... well... my life/  For the most part I have kept a lot about me private because I felt it took away from the blog, but maybe all along it was more of me keeping a guard up. In Truth this blog is a piece of me and has been since 2007!

Here is my current musing...
      Life feels as though it has taken a strange turn. I have been so incredibly busy lately , not only has my lovely blog suffered but I think I have as well. I hate to admit but I feel a little bit lost when I can't find that amazing "me" time. Yes, yes I know... who has any me time anymore? But I seriously miss it.
     As many moms, I play many rolls! I am a mom first and foremost, always! But I am also a girlfriend, a daughter, a grand-daughter, a sister, an aunt, a SweetFrog employee, a blogger and at the end of the day ... back to a mom :) But if you the midst of all those things... I am not just me.
     This may sound selfish, self-centered, and self-absorbed, but it has been so long since I could sit down, write on my blog (which I absolutely adore), read a book, have 10 minutes of just plain quiet time, where I can close my eyes, inhale, exhale and just be in complete relaxation mode.
     Sometimes not having this time where I can identify myself as me, or the things that I enjoy because it revolves around something else, stresses me out. I absolutely love being everything to everyone but I also have found that in order for me to be happy... I need to make more time for me as well.

Question: What is your take? Do you have moments like this?
