We're halfway through! I hope you're all feeling as fabulous as I am.
For today's journal entry I want to ask:
Are you taking care of you?
It's so easy to get caught up in our jobs, in taking care of others in life, or in just plain being busy and let ourselves fall to the bottom of our to-do lists.
Are you taking care of you? Are you making the time to take care of you?
Do you give yourself some quiet time to pray, meditate, or just be still? Are you giving yourself time to be active, to move your body, to workout? Is your sleep a priority? Do you give yourself the time to plan, shop, prep, and prepare good nourishing food that will fuel your body and make you feel great?
Are you putting your job or other people first and letting your needs slip? Are you resenting others because you aren't taking the time to take care of you?
Are you taking care of you? If not, what things can you start doing today to change this.
It is not selfish to take care of yourself. It is an absolute necessity. I'd go so far as to call it a responsibility. If we make that time to take care of ourselves, to make sure we are at our best, we will be so much better to our friends, family, job...
OK, this may sound strange, but think about it like this: we know that if we take care of our car it will run better and longer for us. We change it's oil. Buy it new tires. Wash it. Take it in for a tune-up. If we don't, it may just leave us and our family on the side of the road some day.
Same for ourselves! If we don't take care of us...
Hugs! I'm so proud of you all. See you in the FB group.
