Me Time Shirts

wow I am so excited, My Time For Me is now selling me time shirts on our website. You really have to check out these shirts, the quality is great and even better are the designs and sayings. They really say it all.

I myself find it hard sometimes to take "me time" but I make it a priority to do so and get out of my normal routine and do something that is just about me. To me, these new shirts are not only a reminder that I did something for myself but also of how good I felt putting myself first for once. It is a reminder that it is okay to take time for me, and take it often, and of how good it feels to do so.

When things get overwhelming (and that happens often to me) I am reminded of how it felt to take a break and celebrate me and I can calm myself down, get through the task ahead and know, I can again reconnect with myself very soon with my next chance at "me time"

So I will be proudly wearing my new shirts and I look forward to seeing them on you. Nothing makes me happier than to see other busy women like me taking some time to treat themselves to well deserved "me time"

The Art of Truffle Making

This past Wednesday (Feb 13, 2008) My Time For Me held our third truffle making event at Chocopologie in Norwarlk and once again the event was a huge success. We all had so much fun going into the kitchen, rolling truffles, eating the wonderful food made for us and spending time with new and old friends. We even got to bring home what we made that night - YUM!

It was so nice to see so many familiar faces at the event and meet the new ones. The energy in the cafe from all the wonderful women was truely exhilarating! After spending the night with this great group of women we are even more excited than usual for our upcoming events.

Wanna see how much fun we had? Check out these pictures from the night and let me know what your thoughts on the evening, the pictures and MTFM in general.

Taking time for "me"

Taking time for ourselves is one of the most important things that we can do for ourselves and one of the hardest things to do. There is always someone else or something else demanding our time and we just can't so no to them and say yes to ourselves.

To make sure that I remembmer to take time for myself everday I have decided to add to my daily gratitude journal what I did for myself that day, even something as small as taking a ride through the beach, reading a magazine of my choice or getting an ice cream cone to something a bit larger like finishing my scuba certification. Whatever it may be, it is important for all of us to do and to enjoy it. And if you need help deciding what to do for yourself check out My Time For Me for some ideas and join us at one of our events put together with you in mind.

If you do not already do a gratitude journal, I highly reccommend starting one, it really makes a difference in your day when you focus on the good things and it really makes the day a better one when you reflect back and see all the happy things that happened.

My Time For Me New Events

Well we are only into the 6th week of the year and we have been busy putting together new events for the new year. Things are great in 2008 is our theme for the year, both for My Time For Me and personally.

My Time For Me has branched out this year and we are travelling for the day to Hunter Mountain to learn to snow board. This is going to be a great day, Hunter Mountain has a learning for ladies clinic that we will be taking advantage, and everything you need will be provided, transporation, lessons, snowboard, a limited use pass and even a Burton t-shirt. Oh and lets not forget, the best thing about a day at the mountain, the apres snowboard party with food and drink to celebrate that we conquered the mountain. To sign up or learn more about it, check it out on our website

We are also excited to announce new this year, our series of events. We are offering a series of 3 evenings at Cookin Dinners and a series of 3 meditation nights. You can do one or you can do all 3 or each but these are great events, cooking and life balance, what great events to add your monthly calendar.

See you soon!
