More then just cake…

I have had an amazing day. I didn’t think my time at the cake fair would relate to balance and moderation but it does. Here is how. Sometimes we have to moderate doing thing for others and remember to do something for ourselves. Don’t get me wrong it is great to give of yourself. It’s important to provide for your family. However, frequently we go to far we give to much. In the rare I instances went we do something for ourselves we feel guilt.

Living balanced a life requires you to sometime do something for you. Although I felt guilty leaving my husband and kids, I made today about me. I bought things for me. I learned about thing I enjoy. I took my time. I didn’t rush around. I savor ed my moments. Don’t get me wrong I miss my family immensely, but sometimes you need to be able to go solo.

I worked out with no howeling dog or fear of waking the house up.  I took a bath! Not a quick shower with someone asking you questions thru the door. A long leisurely relaxing bath! Now I plan to read a book. Yes, actually more then a page before I fall asleep. (I’m so excited)

My point is sometimes you need some time away to reflect on all that you are, the blessing you have, and life in general. I have not done that for a very long time. I did not understand at the time I planned this how much I needed it. If you feel frazzled, rushed and overscheduled like I have. Maybe it’s a sign you need to schedule you time. Trust me you will be happy you did.

Anyhow enough about me. Here are some amazing cakes that I saw at the fair. So much talent.
