Sometimes we feel guilty for putting our self first but I am here to tell it’s OK to pamper yourself everyone once a while. Go for a nice walk, binge watch some TV, read a book, or have a nice glass of wine. There is nothing wrong with wanting a little alone time to recuperate your mind, body, and spirit. As a wife, mother, and librarian I find myself overwhelmed sometimes, especially during these new and challenging times we are facing as a country. I have learned to step back from it all and take a moment for myself. I am going to share with you some resources that you can use to help you with Me Time.
