I’m definitely one that would describe my life as busy.
I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a daughter. I’m a sister. I’m a friend.
I’m a full-time working woman.
Life is truly centered about my family and my work… and that’s about it.
I’m the FIRST one to admit that I don’t take time for myself to feed my soul. I’m here. I’m there. I’m everywhere. And then when it’s time for me? I usually collapse on the couch!
My dear friend Jessica Turner wrote a book that – quite literally – opened my eyes and my heart. It’s called… The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You.
I started diving into it a few days ago while I was waiting for my son to finish swim team and I couldn’t put it down. All I can say is Jessica nailed it in this book. This was a gigantically busy week for me and I was really was running on low. I started reading it again last night and I was just blown away by how much I really needed this… really need the permission… really need the pat on the back… really needed the reality.
Every woman has had this experience: you get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you. And if you go days, weeks, or even months in this cycle, you begin to feel like you have lost a bit of yourself.
While life is busy with a litany of must-dos–work, parenting, keeping house, grocery shopping, laundry and on and on–women do not have to push their own needs aside. Yet this is often what happens. There’s just no time, right? Wrong.
In this practical and liberating book, Jessica Turner empowers women to take back pockets of time they already have in their day in order to practice self-care and do the things they love. Turner uses her own experiences and those of women across the country to teach readers how to balance their many responsibilities while still taking time to invest in themselves. She also addresses barriers to this lifestyle, such as comparison and guilt, and demonstrates how eliminating these feelings and making changes to one’s schedule will make the reader a better wife, mother, and friend.
Perfect for any woman who is doing everything for everyone–except herself–The Fringe Hours is ideal for both individuals and small group use.
It’s beyond worth adding to your collection of books.
It will truly – help you look at your life and figure out when you can grab sometime for some yourself.
