As a mother, sister, daughter, friend, aunt, employer and more, my time is so stretched, so limited, that I really have forgotten to make some time for myself. My objective the last few years has been to excel at work, get my daughter through high school and into college and then I would make time for “me”.
When in reality, I should have found a better way to balance all of that and still find that “me” time I needed. With the new year, I have made a resolution to find a new “me” and encompass that in as many areas as I can. Starting with health, hobbies and more. While I know this will take some adjustment and exploring, I am thankful to have found this amazing novel to help me out – The Fringe Hours, by Jessica Turner.
This book is a breath of fresh air to me. After reading, it has helped me feel a bit empowered. Not in a selfish way, mind you, but rather a way that will help me find the healthy balance I need to be the best “me” I possibly can. I am learning that happiness has to start with me and can infectiously and positively affect ever other element of my life.
Jessica Turner gives you the power to think positively, utilize those God-given talents we all have and to find that equal, healthy balance between responsibilities and “me time”. Whether it is 10 minutes a day for a power-nap, a 30 minute soak in the tub with some soft music or even a day at the spa, we all need to take time, stop, breath and reflect on just how we can lose sites of ourselves and get lost in all of life’s demands.
The Fringe Hours was really inspiring to me and is a great read for every woman to show them just how easy and simple it is to take some time for ourselves daily, weekly, monthly – you name it. She has released an inspiring line of products to compliment her novel.
