After 8 years of marriage and mumhood I am finally going on a trip all by myself!!!
Before being a mum I would go anywhere by myself. One thought and I was there! But over the past 8 years I have given myself to taking care of my boys, the house and my gorgeous husband, but the problem here is: I have neglected myself. I have put others needs before my needs ALL THE TIME for so long now that I now feel guilty for doing something which is only for me. I see this a lot with mums who come on day retreats at the Yoga Frog sanctuary so if you are a mum you probably understand what I am saying.
I am going to Berlin for a weekend of yoga with Meghan Currie. One weekend in which I won’t be a mum or a wife. I will be Polly! I feel excited, and a bit scared about it. I will probably feel guilty once I leave my boys behind (I always feel that). But I realize that it is important to give myself the time and space I need to replenish so I can be my best for myself and for those around me.
It is time to ‘fill my cup’ so I can give to others without depleting myself.
Wish me all the best and a good time.
