Selfish WTF?

It's been awhile since I've blogged about something other than kids. I am sorry but I've been on my babymoon! I'm still crazy in love with my wee topolina, however..

What I want to blog about today is the word selfish. How easy it is to think of someone as selfish because they put themselves first. I mean what a concept...putting yourself first wtf?

WTF's wrong with putting yourself first? It's all about balancing input/output HULLO!!

I, haute mama, have been accused of being selfish..ok I can admit that after my kids are taken care of...I come first most of the time...what does j-hi want to do now..but why is there a negative connotation to that? I'm not really a people pleaser, I do what I want when i want...once my kids are taken care of.

I spend more time with my BH than most, if anything some people might argue it's unhealthy so I would say I don't always put myself first, second, third, fourth or fifth...but I try to balance it with ME whenever I can!

So, I say...maybe people are selfish who expect more of me than I can give.

I also say, enough about me what about me? ha!

My wise older cuz once said to me, our life is like a pie, there are eight, kids, husband, house, hobbies, friends, family and me!

WTF once you're a mom, you are supposed to be a martyr?? I don't think so...

So, I am advocating selfishness. Go. Give your soul what it deserves right now.

WTF are you waiting for?

In total agreement here! I firmly believe you cannot give to others until you yourself are whole and intact.
You've inspired me. Spa--here I come!

YES!! i have such issues with this...that once a mom you can't think about yourself, and then it becomes a "treat" when you get the chance to put yourself first. it shouldn't be something special that occurs rarely. do it!
