I was reading some blogs today and I read one where a gal was having a hard time putting herself first. This is very hard, especially when you have others who depend on you. It was very hard for me because I have a husband, children, students, and friends who depend on me. But, I started putting myself first and you know what - my family, students, and friends have all stood behind me. They have supported me in that effort.
Putting yourself first doesn't mean you are selfish - it means you value yourself enough to say "Hey, I'm important here and I have value." I do have value and I am important. Putting yourself first doesn't mean that you're neglecting those who depend on you - it means you're giving time to the very person they depend on - you.
So, don't feel bad for taking 15-30 minutes, or even an hour for yourself. You deserve it and you are worth it.
