Becoming Better

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

When I began my buisness ten years ago I searched for a motto or tag line that would describe what I did. I came up with "Helping Good People Become Better." It dawned on me this morning as I filled in my data here at Sparkpeople that I had been really succesful at doing that for everyone but myself.

While I took the time to encourage, nurture and develop other people I let myself and my goals fall by the wayside. Something or someone else was always more important. I helped a lot of good people become better at my own expense.

It's hard to be appropriatley selfish, to take the time for you. I'm going to start. Starting today, I am going to look at myself through the same prism I look at other people through. I'm a good person on the road to becoming better.

Join me?

I like the phrase "appropriatley selfish"

And of course I will join you!

    Good for you, I can totally relate to the difficulties of putting yourself first, it always seems that there is something or someone more important. I too am working hard everyday to take time for me and do what's best for me for a change and even say no once in a while to others who need me. With time it does get easier. Good luck to you, and know that you aren't alone. HUGS, Kat
