Self Care

Image

Today I’d like to remind us of the oxygen mask theory.  You can’t help anyone else if you don’t first take care of yourself.  Sometimes it’s all too easy to find yourself in the familiar scenery of the back burner.  It doesn’t matter if you are marvelous at handling the reins from there.  In fact, that’s an even better indicator that you need to take care of you.

In the next month, I want you to have a plan to do something for YOU.  A day trip or a weekend or a full-fledged “all about you” trip.  Only you can know what will really be relaxing for you, or fun for you, or whatever you need it to be.

You.  You are in charge.  Start planning something for yourself.  Don’t take NO for an answer.  You aren’t asking permission.  You are supplying information to those who need it.  I’ll be checking back for progress.  Let’s call it a project, shall we?  30 days to you.  Countdown begins… NOW!

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
