Today I came across a realization that I take care of everyone else before taking care of myself. I always put my job and others before my own needs and desires. In my head, everyone else has something more intense going on that I should help with, my problems are not large compared to so and so, I have no reason to spend time with or on myself when so many people need me…
Reality check. I will be of no use to anyone if I do not care for myself first. I’ve always been the strong one. I don’t let my weaknesses show, I don’t let my fears show. But I am going to start being true to myself because I deserve it and I need it.
Today, I continued. I ate well. I did not veer off of my goal, I did my work out. I did not have any green beer, and I am going to be going to bed early. I have my goals set, I’ve read them out loud to myself and I’m going to find peace in knowing I am finally taking care of myself! And gosh will it feel good to be the best me I can be!
Please take the time to reflect on your strengths and your weaknesses. Make your weaknesses into strengths. You only succeed or learn, there is no fail! You cannot do everything, sometimes you will have to say no, but you need to be the best version of yourself in order to use your talents for the purpose that was given to you!!!
