I had a revelation last night as I cooked pasta in someone else's beautiful kitchen while their 8 month old slept and I sacrificed yet another Sat night in the name of a few more 20's in my pocket. I was washing the strainer and as I lifted the red and white striped towel to dry it a voice in my head said,
Be kind to yourself.
And I thought, I would never be as mean to someone as I so often am to myself.
So as this weekend draws to a close; a weekend that didn't go as planned, that left me feeling inadequate, I will carry this new mantra forward.
And I encourage all the Type-A's, perfectionists, own-worst-critics...hell, women in general to do the same.
Have a Lovely Weekend.
