#selfcaresundays – why I’m going for walks

to: me

This week as my fiancé goes for runs, Tux and I have been going for walks.

  

I decided to go for walks while my fiancé goes for runs because I needed to get out of the house. 

I’m tired of being at home all day and night. 

I’m tired of going out just for errands. 

I’m tired of the chaos that is bringing a baby anywhere. 

I’m just tired of being a mom. 

Yes, I said it. 

Some days, I really am. I just want to stop. But, yes I still have to take my baby boy out for these walks with me and no, it’s not for him. These walks are for me because sometimes, you just need to stop and smell the roses.

This is my therapy. Writing and walking.

This is how I will take care of myself, my mental, emotional, physical self.  

These walks are refreshing as it helps me stay more active and get out of the house without too much of a struggle. It gives me my sanity back if not for only a brief moment, I feel me again.

How are you parents keeping your sanity? Especially those stay-at-home parents? What keeps you going?

❤ Sarah
