Making Me a Priority... FINALLY!!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Along the way, it is easy to get discouraged, feel like you are not making progress and lose sight of your goals.

For many years, I have found encouragement in wonderful friends and family who have supported me in my many goals... finishing school, my career, marriage, etc. However, when it comes to my health and fitness, I realize that I must learn to encourage myself and make myself a priority.

To be honest, this is not easy for me. I am used to being the cheerleader for others and it feels intrinsically selfish to make me #1. But I am finally realizing that this is the best thing I can do for all of my relationships. The better I feel about myself, the more joy and love I can share with others. It took a long time for me to learn this lesson but I'm getting it and it feels GREAT!
