Being my own boss is both a blessing and a curse.
I don’t have a typical 9-5. I’m able to take time off to attend kids school event, work in my slippers with no make up on, stay home when I have no facial appointments.and avoid long lines by running errands in the middle of day.
But. It’s not all fairytales, sprinkles, smiles, and sunshine. I work 24/7. I can’t remember a day in puretincture that I have not thought about it, find out about new good skincare brands, tweaked a facial technique, responded to a comment, wrote an email, scheduled a post, shared on social media, or photographed. Oftentimes it’s impossible to pull myself completely away and just… live! I’m becoming boring. There hardly any me time (as in totally me time).
So. I decided to make a rule for myself. 1 day a week. No work, no cell phones, no computers, no iPads, no i-whatevers. Real conversation, real moments, and 100% attention to my little family. And let me tell you, it feels superb.
