Excited for a new start

Thursday, September 08, 2011

I woke up early this morning, before the sun. I made my husband's lunch I planned out dinner. While I ate my breakfast I though of all the things I had to do today and quickly realized I was nowhere on that list. I said to myself "this is unacceptable". I have been through this cycle before. I get so overwhelmed with life and taking care of everyone else and the first thing to take a hit on my priority list is me.

Well, since this seems to be the year of new starts--new degree pursuit, new marriage, new career goals, renewed faith, why not a new mentality on how I prioritize my needs. I have heard that if you don't love yourself first, you can't love anyone else. While that makes perfect sense in theory, in practice it falls short. I becomes so easy for us ladies to love everyone else first and put ourselves last on the list.

Today is my new start. It's not a special day of the week, a special week in the month, or any thing of the sort. I just had an "Ah ha" moment of clarity and I want to make good use of my epiphany. I am making myself a priority again and I hope you will do the same.
