I've been focusing on myself a lot lately.
As a homeschooling mom it is all too easy to put myself last. In the long run that is the worst thing I could be doing for my family. Sure, we give up a lot when we become a parent, especially when we decide to home educate, but one of the most loving things we can do for our family is to be the best that we can be. That certainly cannot happen if we allow ourselves to get lost in the mire. Unfortunately, I am 100% guilty of doing just that. I've allowed myself to disappear.
