Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 1.55.08 PM When I was in my 20s, I think I would have laughed at myself at 40 feeling like I would need a book to help me figure out how to make time for myself.  Of course in my 20s, I didn’t have kids or a schedule that involved much other than going to work, going home and feeding myself.  My 20s are the last time I actually remember feeling like I had all the time in the world, and having moments where I was actually bored!

Today, as a mother of two, business owner and school volunteer, I can say that the concept of finding time for me as an impossible task.  There’s so much that come first before my own time – my kids, work, my husband, running the house and just general every day business.

My blogger friend Jessica Turner has a crazy life of her own but she has managed to find a way to make time for herself within her already chaotic life.  She has found pockets of time that can be taken back for us and she shares her wisdom in her recent book release, The Fringe Hours {$9.34 on Amazon}.  Ladies, this is the book we NEED.

I’m only partway through the book but I’m really enjoying it.  It’s not only giving me tips on ways to maximize my time and making more for me but it’s making me feel empowered to take better charge of my time. (Particularly looking forward to the part where she talks about creative ways to say no – I’m definitely a yes person and need to learn to turn some things down.  And also not saying yes just because of guilt, which I am also the QUEEN of.)

Make the time to read (haha! first step!) and check out The Fringe Hours {$9.34 on Amazon}.
