YOU should be a priority

In the schedule of our hectic and crazy lives, we often forget to keep ourselves on our own priority list. There always seems to be someone else who needs to be taken care of, a task that can’t be completed by anyone else, or a sick child who needs loving care. In the rush of daily existence, don’t forget about yourself. If you are not well, then how are you going to effectively help those around you.

What are some ways you can begin to take a little time for yourself to just refresh and start over? What things to do you enjoy but have to push aside in the name of “helping others”? Think about these questions and find a slot of time in your calendar to pencil in “Date Night with Me”

  1. I remind others to be gentle with themselves. We can be so hard on ourselves when we are struggling. I’m learning to just rest sometimes. To just relax, journal in bed, red a good book, take a bath, do something that is restful for the spirit.♥ , mind♥ and body♥

  4. First off, I love your header! The platypus made me smile.

    My method for getting some “me” time is to slam on my headphones, noise canceling of course, and then I do what I have to do. This way, even if someone does speak to me I cannot hear them. I get to enjoy the music I love while ignoring everyone around me. It sounds selfish, but sometimes being selfish is very necessary.

  5. This sounds strange, but the McAfee anti-virus on my macbook is blocking your blog in my browser since a few days- it says your website is too risky to visit. Your blog is the only one it warns me about :/
    I hope you’re not having any problems running your blog? x
