Love it

Let me begin by saying that I love my husband and children very much. Over the last few months, I have had this strong desire to have my own space. I mean furniture that is not kid friendly, beautiful dishes and fine silver. Everything is pink and green and yellow. A place where I won’t have to compromise on anything. I can watch my British comedies and NCIS without interruption. My girlfriends will be able to come over and hang out and talk without interruption. I want to go to the grocery store and buy small quantities of the best cuts of meat and really enjoy a good Cabernet while listening to music and reading an entire book. When I wake in the morning or go to bed at night, I only want to be responsible for me.

    • I hear ya.....

      I think as we hit 40 and beyond we start focusing on us and not the family as much as before. I know for ME it’s MY time and all about ME now. It’s not selfish especially since I focused only on the kids and hubz for so long.

    • I agree with Vikki.  When I turned 40 I felt this absolute need to be left alone.  I did explain it to my husband.  I told him it had nothing to do with him but it was  me just wanting to do me.  I did not want to be mummy or wife.  Earlier in life I would have branded it as selfish but now I call it “Me Time“.  I do have a lot of “Me Time” and enjoying it.  We have spent so much time or the better part of our years being something to everybody that now it is “Our Time“.  My friend enjoy the moments, it is not selfish but it is a new time for you.

    • Thanks everyone. I have wanted to say that out loud for some time now. You are so right. I need some me time and I am going to get it. At the same time, I need my family too. It is like Reba Mcentire’s song, Is There Life Out There?

    • Exactly right!  If you don’t have a balance between “your time” and “their time“, you‘re going to feel out of sorts and your family won’t have you at your best! heart
