    I try to eat a variety of foods to cover the bases. Not sure anyone does a thorough job of it. You hear so much about "natural vitamins' and how they just do nothing for you. Who can you really believe?

So what are you waiting for?

Monday, September 20, 2010

Move yourself to the top of your to-do list.

Your most important mission is this: Claim a corner of this day to focus on yourself. Ride a bike. emoticon Get a checkup. emoticon Crank up the stereo, close your eyes and transport yourself back to your childhood, before so many pressures invaded your world. emoticon And when you start feeling really, really good, call up a friend and spread the word. emoticon Say you're starting your own me-time movement. emoticon

    We always seem to put other first, its a mothers nature. I agree we need to schedule time for ourselves, me-time!

    Sage advice from a wise and successful lady! Thank you :)

And DEVORA4 has started a movement amongst some of us Sparksters which promotes your idea, Judy - we're giving ourselves the "I Love You" SparkGoodie as an emblem of self-love. We were inspired by her blog entry here:

Your idea of giving ourselves priority in our lives - top billing, in fact! - is so life-affirming! Brava for a great blog entry!! - Sandi emoticon
