Beth is so happy that she will actually be able to sit outside and read a book for an hour or two. Then the phone rings and it's her friend who asks her to come over and help her decide on a color for her new drapes. Beth feels a tug at her heart.........her heart tells her to say no. But as usual, Beth puts herself aside and helps her friend.
After she comes home from her friend's house, Beth thinks of taking a nice warm bath. She then gets a text from her husband saying he's on his way home from work early and asks her what's for dinner. So again Beth feels the nudge of her heart, telling her to take the time for herself and tell her husband to pick up a pizza. But once again Beth puts another person's needs before her own and heads downstairs to make dinner.
Does any of this sound familiar? You feel that nudge and pull from your inner self that is trying to tell you, 'hey, I need some time too! when am I going to get a turn?' You keep putting your needs last on the list, and by the time you get to that list, you're too tired to do any of it, so you go to bed and pray that tomorrow you will be able to do something that really makes your heart sing. Do you even know what would make your heart sing? Has it been so long since you did something for yourself that you forget what you actually like to do?
Of course we have all things we do everyday to care for others, especially if you have a family. But does that mean that you shouldn't have any time for yourself? I think not. What do you think?
If you don't take that time for yourself, how are you going to keep that super-woman strength up? How will you be able to take care of others when you are falling apart? It's time to take a time out for yourself. If you don't, how much longer can you keep up this pace? I hear far too many women say that they are so tired and exhausted, to the point that they don't even feel like getting up in the morning........what kind of life is that?
How would it feel to be invigorated when you wake up....and be actually excited to live that day?
If you had a day, entirely devoted to yourself, what would you do? What feelings show up when you think of having a day all to yourself? Are you excited? nervous? feeling guilty?
If you want to continue to be able to do things for others, without burning out, then it's time to really think about taking that time out and start thinking about yourself. Aren't you worth it? Yes! You absolutely are!
So here's a little tip: Take 5 minutes to make a list of what you would do if you had an entire day for yourself. Whatever comes to you, write it all down. Then take a look at that list. Pick one thing and put it on your calendar to do next week. Pick another thing and put that on your calender two weeks later. Once you realize how good it feels to do this, to actually write your 'Me Time' in your calendar and actually do it, you will make this a habit and write 'Me Time' in your calendar every week......and who knows, maybe you'll even discover something you love to do daily.....wow, could you imagine that! I can.
Love yourself first and all will follow.
