I LOVED this article! It's about paying attention....which we all fail to do at times. It's about treating yourself right. The rest will fall into place. Thanks for the great motivation!

This article was very motivating. I always put myself last and feel like I am never doing enough towards my weight loss. Very thought provoking.

Wow, this sounds like me all over. When I'm going, I have a hard time stopping, then I crash and burn and can't do anything. I have a nasty perfectionistic streak that I need to learn how to nip.

Wow! Did I ever need to read this article - after spending the last 5 months being the primary caregiver for my aging parents(who both have rapidly deteriorating health & in the hospital 3 times), having had surgery myself, trying to keep up with my exercise regime as soon as I was able post-surgery, plus still trying to meet my various other "obligations"....so many days I have felt that if I even took a minute to think about how overburden I feel - I would just start crying and never stop. Just this week I have started to take steps to get in-home caregivers for my parents...not a quick or easy process, but one that will be well worth it for them and myself. It rang true what you said in your article 'we can't take care of others if we're not taking care of ourselves'. I want to feel happy, rested and healthy again....and I will.

This is so relevant to me and my life right now. Just what me and my Type A personality needed to hear today. Thank you! for the new perspective.

Thank you for sharing your story. It totally resonates with me. I find I need to remind myself to not take myself or life so seriously every now and again. I will save your message for when I need it...

How many times in my thirty-plus years of teaching school and raising three kids did I need to read this article? Thank you for a refresher on some very important life lessons!
