Day 10 – Wifey Wednesday (Take Good Care)

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016


You need to hear this.  Every woman needs to hear this.  TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF!

If I’ve learned anything about myself in 49 years, it’s that I can only be as good as I let myself be.  It takes effort to be good, feel good and live good.  An unhealthy wife is NOT a happy wife.   Neither is one who’s struggling emotionally.

Women do a terrible job of managing themselves while making everyone around them successful.   In other words, we put SELF last on the to-do list.  Nothing good comes from being a martyr mom & wife.  Except really uptight kids who see their mom neglect her own needs for theirs.   Guess what we create?  Self-centered people who can’t solve their own problems or do anything “normal” for themselves.

That’s not healthy for anybody.

So, what does taking good care of your self look like?

Proper rest
Good diet
Time off
Regular doctor appointments
Happy healthy friendships

Special extras:

Hair appointments
Makeup techniques (wear it!)
Eyebrow maintenance  (Good Lordy- do this ladies!)
Adult vacation time (minus the guilt)
Mani pedi time
Women’s retreats  (gooooooooo!)

I threw that last one in because women need to reconnect with other women.  Men were never designed to meet our emotional needs.  Taking a break to fill up your tank gives you a giant boost as a woman.   Stop turning down opportunities to rejuvenate your soul because you can’t peel yourself away from pancake Saturday at home.

Let me remind you – your kids need time ALONE with their dad!!  That means, get lost!  Go do something fun for you!

This Wifey – Wednesday is really going to change how you feel, look and behave.  So, go…… nice things.  Your husband will really like the happy YOU!

Who Has Time

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

I’m a practical gal. I try to manage my time accordingly. I always have. I’m uptight, remember? I love pampering myself. Only I don’t usually do much pampering. I’m too busy! I remember a friend from a long time ago who said, “Women who wear polish on their toes are women that care about HOW they look!”.

I thought he was crazy at the time. But now that I’m getting up there in years (hehe) I see how easy it is to neglect taking care of myself. I suppose it happens to every woman. Life steals time and energy so we do what we can just to survive. Or maybe that’s just me. 😉

Last night, my youngest daughter (she’s 17) spent the entire evening in the bathroom. I mean, 7:00pm until after 11:30pm. What was she doing? Primping, painting, showering, plucking, shaving….everything a girl needs to do on a regular basis. I had to step over her and her polish station a few times just to use the T-let! I thought she was crazy.

I’m rethinking it though.

Ladies, we should be primping! Maybe not all night long…..but at least slap some polish on and shape up the eyebrows. Right? I’m happy to say that I took just a few minutes and painted on a light coat of nail polish today.


Try to do something JUST FOR YOU today! It’s invigorating!
