I know working an event is not the same as being fully present as an attendee. I may be in the room and able to hear but my concentration is focused on a myriad of details: how is the sound and light levels, does the speaker need water, does catering need a prompt to set the snack, are bathrooms clean, is the new signage posted, do exhibitors have what they were promised, what are the set-up needs for the next transition, are the volunteers in place, did the attendee get her receipt, and other details, all at once.
Rebecca Undem, event-day emcee and creator of How Mommy Got Her Groove Back, hit it home for me in her recap of the event: self-care is not selfish. While I am honored to have played a part in taking care of all those Moms that had the courage to acknowledge, “I need this for me” for now, I’ll relive the day through Rebecca’s lessons learned and let her remind me again that self-care is not selfish.
