Every day there seems to be things that need our attention. I wake up and try to prioritize my day. Making a list helps me to keep in front of me the things I feel are the most important, and as I mark those off, I continue down the list. So far, I haven’t gotten through the entire list in over a month. I get up the next day, going over what was left and prioritize those into that days new list.
I noticed however, this past month there was nothing on my list’s for me personally. Now I am not suggesting that I become self-centered and care only about me and doing just for me–I’m suggesting I include in my list things I really do need to do for myself. Like making time for appointments with doctors and dentist and certainly a hair trim every now and then. Wouldn’t hurt, if I would schedule myself a day off either to run errands that don’t get done.
My sister reminded me it was important to take care of myself. After all, we don’t get younger and since we are getting older, we need to be better about taking care of us mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We also need to find the time to relax and enjoy what we have and those we love.
What about you? Are you taking care of you?
