My escape has been crafting. I love to knit, crochet, sew and scrapbook. In any given month, I will have picked up several different projects and maybe only finished a few of them but the important thing is that I did something for myself. It sounds selfish but it's actually not. If you continue to give and give and give, soon you'll be burnt out. If you take a little time for yourself (even 15 minutes a day will work!), you'll find you're more rested, relaxed, your temper won't flare quite as fast and things will not be so overwhelming. My challenge for you is to pick up a hobby! Look for inspiration on Pinterest, any other website that you love, or the library. It doesn't have to be expensive at all.
Take 15 minutes for yourself and your family will thank you!
