Why it is important that moms take time (or be given time) to dress up and self-pamper.

Some people say we gotta look nice for our husbands, because “men fell in love thru their eyes” atau kasarnya laki-laki lemah di mata. That’s fine, if that works for you, no judgment here. Me, I don’t wanna put that kind of pressure on myself. (Sorry husband 😛, but bear with me and you’ll see what I mean). For me, dressing up is important because it makes me happy. Looking nice and gathered puts me in a good mood. And when I’m happy, I’m better equipped to play my role as a wife and a mother. When I’m happy, I radiate joy in our household; and my husband and kid will be better taken care of.

Note that “looking nice” does not always mean wearing some statement dress you’re not really comfortable in, putting on a full make-up or even getting mani-pedi. Whatever works for you! If a full-on make up makes you feel your best, great. If merely putting together a cute outfit gets you there, awesome. The point is: know what you need (usually it’s what we used to do when we were younger and before we had kids) and give yourself time to do it.

In fact, this encouragement applies to other activities as well. Cooking, reading, traveling, exercising, even working. Make time for any activity you’re passionate about or fond of. I emphasize dressing up and pampering in this post simply because it’s one of those activities we girls like to do but often feel bad for making “too much” time for while we have a baby to tend to.

I say all this because as mothers our instinct is to put another person’s (i.e. baby’s) happiness first, and with the gazillion baby needs we tend to get caught up in a mess and forget about our own needs. So here’s a reminder to you: 🔆 Be happy first, so you can grow a happy family. 🔆
