It’s amazing to note that everyday I open up the ‘Add New Post’ tab on my blog, mull over the title for a good minute, then decide to write the post leaving worries about the title for the end. Stare at the few words I manage to write and be lost wondering ‘ am just too tired to complete this post, I’d rather do it tomorrow’ just to see this ritual repeating itself endlessly.
But, today, the determined me, is going to break this cycle of procrastination and will publish a successful post.
I have been so engrossed
playing being a parent that it literally feels I have totally lost hold of myself in the process. Me – time is non existent to the extent that when my baby decides to let me be (while she is sleeping or busy playing on her own) I am left trying to gather my thoughts on what all I have to accomplish with the little energy I have left in me.
Running is my favorite work-out these days, that entails chasing a very naughty two-year old, that sure tires me but doesn’t seem to be burning enough calories to make me weigh any lesser than I have been from over two months. I seem to have reached the plateau of weight loss, where loosing any further weight isn’t happening (or maybe am just not trying to make it happen).
The mighty terrible-twos that had raised their ugly head many months in advance are still around, but things sure have changed for good in more ways than I can actually count right away. This reminded me, I have tons of parenting post drafts stacked in my head that need to be shared on this blog.
I have had a book on my side table for over two months and managed to read only the first 50 pages. The interesting part is the book is fabulous and has been mighty helpful in helping me find solutions to many of my problems, yet, finding energy to read it has been quite a challenge. (Details on the book coming up when I review it ).
Amidst being busy and exhausted, a lot has happened that needs to be written about on this blog. I sincerely hope to do so before their minute details slip past my grip.
Today has been quite a day for it has had hours of me-time and it actually felt really good. Besides being able to successfully write a complete post (irrespective of the fact that it’s full of rants & incomplete details ), I managed to have a very relaxing trip to the beauty salon and have a very relaxing facial done.
Strangely though, getting the facial done has been least about beauty and more of letting go off my worries to rush back home at first opportunity, letting a professional loosen the knots of stress with her gentle strokes and of course take care of my neglected skin. In short, I am feeling pretty good about the whole experience.
Next on the list is a shopping spree where for a change I shopped for myself and not for baby essentials or groceries that I
always usually do. It’s one of those very few moments of my life where I agree with the fact that shopping can be quite liberating, though I usually don’t believe in retail therapy.
All in all, it has been quite a satisfying day.

That reminds me to go to the saloon and make a shopping trip as well. I completely believe and abide by the me time and relaxation these two investments provide 🙂
Very true OHW, me-time is a must, I know it but seldom practise it. Though am trying to change this vital bit 🙂
Hope you scheduled your appointment for a beauty parlour visit 🙂 Enjoy!!
🙂 felt good reading this post ME. Now I wish to read all those drafted posts from your mind, soon enough here 🙂
I am determined to get those posts in print before I totally forget all about their content.
Thank you GB for always motivating me 🙂
Great to hear that you finally got some me-time. Just once a month at least really helps, doesn’t it?
Absolutely, once a month would be just-right but given my current messed up state, I am aiming at once in 45-60 days 😀
Welcome back ME, hope to see regular posts from you , how’s Pari doing? It’s been a while you wrote about her.
I am really feeling ashamed at responding to the (approx) fifth welcome back message in past few months. These blog disappearances are a shame for I know it well my heart & soul thrives in my blog.
I am going to pace up LF so that I somehow manage to blog about all the occurrences & observations of recent past & try to catch up on all I have missed on your blog.
Its good to see you again in blog world 🙂 🙂 pari has marked two its a wow she is growing fast 🙂 🙂 🙂 running behind is always a beautiful and adorable thing 🙂 🙂 wishing to find al time to share your thoughts and hoping for a book review soon 🙂
Thank you Chipmunk
I am hoping for the best at blogging more regularly 🙂
Sawaar loon is my latest favorite these days! What a beautiful song isn’t it? Looking toward to reading your parenting posts 🙂

//time is non existent to the extent that when my baby decides to let me be (while she is sleeping or busy playing on her own) I am left trying to gather my thoughts on what all I have to accomplish with the little energy I have left in me.
That is exactly my state at weekends. 🙂 There are a thousand things to do but the moment you get some respite, you want to fall on the bed and sleep for ages.
So true Amit.
I can totally understand your state, being a new parent is tougher than the stage I am in. Please do take as much rest as you get a chance to 🙂
Me-time is very very important, be it after marriage when you become engrossed with wifely duties, and especially after being a parent when your child takes priority. It is important to keep yourself happy, that happiness passes on to people around you as well 🙂
Totally Agree with you Ash 🙂
It’s time i actually put this into practise. Thank you for the sweet reminder !!
