Time is something I struggle with and have for as long as I can remember. Taking time for myself, even for things I need like health and fitness, is something I did not learn as a child. I have had to learn how to do those things as an adult and have had many ups and downs in the process. Even today, I struggle with spending my lunch hour doing a workout in my office instead of calling my Honey and checking in. I still called, I just did it at a later time. I feel guilty for spending that time on myself and my health. I was trained to put others first, to abandon my own needs and take care of others. I continue to struggle with those ideas today even though my brain knows better. So, I remind myself once more, feelings are not facts and taking time for me could give me more time in the long run. Here's to fighting old demons and the big picture.
