No matter what you might be going through in your day to day life, be sure to make time for yourself. It’s the way to a happy and healthy life!
Between being a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend etc, it’s easy to forget to take time for yourself. I will admit I am the last person I think about. My family comes first and most of the time I’m fine with it but there comes a mild breaking point.
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing or that I feel someone should do more for me or have a pity party for me, it’s just how it is. I am the type of person to make sure everyone is taken care of before I take care of myself.
While recently shopping, I grabbed myself a bottle of Wente wine Morning Fog Chardonnay and knew it would come in handy… I just didn’t know how soon.
I must give the hubs props as there are times where he pushes me out of the house proclaiming to get out and do something for myself, sans kids. Most of the time, I will go shopping and I end up buying the kids things but it makes me happy to see them happy.
I had the perfect opportunity to put that bottle of Wente wine to good use. I was out of the door before anyone could say, “see you later.”
To me, nothing is more relaxing than sitting down, with a glass (or two) of wine with thoughts all to my own. There are no children asking for snacks, no laundry to be folded or dishes to be done.
On this particular night, after dinner, I headed down to the bridge, that overlooks the creek on a lovely summer’s night. I looked forward to the next hour of silence to make time for myself. I sat and enjoyed the bright and crisp, Morning Fog Chardonnay, from Wente Vineyards.
We all like to come down here when they have concerts in the park. They have a great venue, where you can set up a blanket, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the local musicians on the lawn. This summer, if you are close to Livermore, CA, be sure to visit Wente Vineyards where they have concerts in their vineyard. Check your local newspaper and find a local concert in the park near you, pick up a bottle Wente wine and enjoy yourself.
It’s so important to make time for yourself. Whether that be running a hot bath and soaking in the tub with a glass of Chardonnay or enjoying a concert in the park, solo. Yes, do it. Step out of your comfort zone. Enjoy a dinner alone at a fancy restaurant, it gives you such a feeling of independence which so many of us lack when we have others to take care of and we place ourselves on the back burner.
How do you like to wind down after a long day? What do you do to make time for yourself? Next time you are in the store, grab a bottle of Wente wine and make time for yourself however it makes you happy.1
