Worth it.

I've never been one who consistently does her hair. Since Vince's arrival I've transformed from someone who rarely does her hair to someone who never does her hair. There were always excuses about having too much on my plate to find time to do my hair. After a while it began to take a toll on my self-confidence. Still, I couldn't convince myself that it was worth it to take the time to style my hair when there was so much other stuff to do.

Recently, I had a breakthrough. Telling myself that "it" wasn't worth it to do my hair was in essence saying that "I" wasn't worth it. Mothers are expected to sacrifice, but there comes a point where you can give too much. I mean, you can't draw water from an empty well. My sister shared with me that she tries to do her hair once a week so she can look nice on Sunday. I decided that this would be perfect. Once a week I would take just an extra bit of time for me. I've already noticed a difference in the way I feel about myself. And guess what I'm starting to believe?

I am worth it.
