I am a Mumma, a Wife, a Daughter, a Grand-daughter, a Sister… (I could go on, you get the idea) but where in the general scheme of things am I, well, ME?
A little while ago, I realised that in amongst all of these things I had lost touch with who this ME was.
Sure they are important roles to play and with them comes certain responsibilities but I was forgetting the most significant factor in my life story. I had forgotten to nurture myself, to give that same love and attention that I so willingly and easily gave to others but save none for myself, to give all my energies and leave nothing in the tank ..
When you say yes to others make sure you are not saying no to yourself – Paulo Coehlo
It could not continue this way, it would not continue that way, things would change and this little ol’ ME would no longer come last on the list, I would take my energies and I would fill my tank and leave enough reserves for those closest to me, followed by the rest. I would come FIRST!
No, it is not selfish and yes, I did feel a little guilty at first.
I shuffled my schedule and I made time, to do what I wish – just for ME!
This is time well spent. Not only am I a lot happier which in turn makes those around me happier, I am setting a good example for my kidlets. They will grow up knowing self-importance, remembering to nurture themselves not just their families.
I am ME first and foremost but I am also a Mumma, a Wife ….. etc.
