The definition of Selfless: Without concern for oneself;having little or no concern for oneself, esp. with regard to fame, position, money, etc.; unselfish; "devoted to others' welfare or interest and not one's own,".
When you say "I do" and become a wife you are choosing to become selfless. When you decided to become a parent you are choosing to be more selfless, as you add more children to the family...more selfless.
Being a parent is one of the most selfless roles to have. I love my boys and I strive everyday to be the best Momma for them. HOWEVER...one of my goals for this year is to be a bit more, shall I say selfish! I want to get back to washing my face at night (and some nights teeth) instead walking straight to bed like a zombie, I want to keep my toes nails from touching the end of my shoes (maybe even paint them!), I want to not have to think back to how many days it has been since I took a shower, I want to have the good smelling shampo, I want to READ, I want to blog and make new friends, I want to stop for a soda at a Sonic and not feel guilty that I don't buy one for the whole family, I want to...the list could go on and on. I just want to take a bit more care of me.
Hmmm. Too Selfish?
