As parents, we pour so much of ourselves into the care of our children.
Love, attention, time. It often comes at the sacrifice of our own needs. We may have days, weeks, months where we feel tired both physically and emotionally, drained from that constant giving.
I have found in order to be the best mom I can be — a parent who is happy, engaged, fulfilled, and able to reign in my own feelings when I am on the cusp of losing it — that there is one thing above all us that allows me to be that parent.
Namely, having a creative outlet.
Today I’m honored to be at Parenting from the Heart sharing with you four reasons every parent needs a creative outlet.
