Importance of taking time for yourself

The way I deal with being self-honoring and still fully available to my children, it's by somehow sacrificing the images that I had my head full of - The perfect way everything should look like, and then obsess in achieving that. By letting go of that and just allowing the present moment to unfold and being a mom, I am here present being a mother, enjoying myself being a mother; sharing the best of me, the best of them. Even if it doesn't look as the perfect picture; even if there's screams in all over the placeness; just enjoying myself and just enjoying each other. And the if I move on and I take care of myself, I'm just exercising or doing doing my projects, or even having a lunch with friends; same thing, just being present, just letting go of the the rest and being present, invested in the moment. I'm sacrificing all these ideas of shame and guilt that "I should be doing this or I should be feeling like this," something that is not what's present. I try to enjoy what's present.
