Theres no doubt in my mind when it comes to the kids nap time that I should just do whatever the heck I want. I can watch Korean dramas or take a nap with them. Or I can blog about stuff (like how I’m doing now). But lately, “nap time” has become an essential small time frame that I desperately need to have for ME. “ME time” is what I call it and without it I find myself getting frustrated, easily angry with the kids and becoming cranky and tired.
Today I decided to have a Snickers bar(Almond not the original with peanuts) and a mint-lemonade. I made the lemon syrup and just added some fresh mint leaves and sparkling water to it.
Then I wanted some chips (포카칩 먹고싶었지만 didn’t have any so I had to settle for 양파깡) so I opened up a bag and here I am just filling my stomach with junk food and blogging about it. hahahha I am so darn honest aren’t I? A little too honest right?
Anyways, I feel like ever since my laptop broke down (still haven’t gotten it fixed yet, it was sent to Korea with my in-laws but still not fixed) I’ve been stressing out about things that aren’t even important to me. Then I realized that “ME time” wasn’t happening because of it. AND because there was no “ME time” I was taking things out on the kids. I kept getting mad at things that were… like… NOTHING. I kept pushing them to do things “properly” when they were just being kids.
I prayed, I talked to someone about it and came down to the conclusion that I just needed some time for ME.
So everyday, even if I’m super tired and want to sleep. I sacrifice sleep and spend some time looking back at my day or morning, and just think about me. What I wanna do with this time, what I wanna eat, what I can do for the hubby and kids and what I want to do for me.
It’s been two weeks since I started doing this “ME time” thing and surprisingly, it seems to be helping.
Maybe I should start video blogging so that I can spill my guts out at the “internet world”. LOL
