Here’s a story for you. I decided to treat myself to coffee at a Starbucks for my Mommy Time-Out the other day. I went with the mindset that I would buy my drink, find a quiet spot and read my book. Unfortunately, things did not turn out as I expected. There was a nice gentleman that talked to me the whole time, and at one point he even asked me to watch his personal belongings while he got a refill! I did, but when he returned, I politely got up and found another spot where there was peace and quiet. I was determined to take care of me and I am happy to say I did, and went home renewed. There is nothing wrong with being politely selfish. It’s up to us to take control of our MTO and make it happen, before, after and even DURING. Because if we don’t, who will?
We’d love to hear your MTO challenge. Were you able to overcome it?
