As much as I try to live in the moment, I can often slip into a place where my days are spent racing from task to task. During this time, I find myself seeming a bit robotic. The more I allow myself to stay in this unhealthy pace, the more my heart yearns for JOY…for ME TIME.
- I want to take a walk
- I want to read a book
- I want to create
During this robotic time, there is a voice inside my head that always says, “Once you complete A, B, and C you can allow yourself some ME TIME.” I really dislike that voice! As you probably know, A, B and C are never done! Life is never done. A, B and C will never be completed because D, E, and F pop out of nowhere and bite you in the bottom!
At this point, you are probably shaking your head yes, in complete agreement! You know the voice of which I speak and you know about the notorious D, E and F. When they show up on the scene, A, B and C are lucky to even happen! When will we learn that life is never done?
Today, Be Still… Make it a priority to set aside a little ME TIME each day. You deserve it! For the next week, put your ME TIME goal at the top of your daily adventure list, rather than at the bottom. Grant yourself this beautiful gift of time and embrace gratitude for these priceless moments. I feel JOY bubbling up inside me, just contemplating what my ME TIME will look like! I can guarantee that A, B and C will look a whole lot more manageable, once you have embraced your daily ME TIME. More importantly, D, E and F will not make you feel like your world is crumbling when they arrive on the scene, uninvited!
Make yourself a priority! Remember, this is not a selfish act. You are taking time to enjoy your own company, which in turn will feed your soul…
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
