Committing to First Place

So the good feelings from North Carolina continue with following through on decisions made when burdens were lighter. Exercise. Eat well. Rest completely. Take care…Balance…It all sounds so good, but why is it so hard? My focus has to be ‘plan, prepare and attend sessions on keeping it all straight’. There are so many items on the self care ‘to do’list, that it seems onerous, although absolutely necessary.

Our body is a temple and it requires a lot of attention, so it seems. Things spiral out of control so quickly. By dropping the ball, even for a short period of time, it can have serious consequences. It’s all so sobering. It’s been challenging to organize myself into the routines that are necessary for sustaining myself in a healthy way. There’s a part of me that actually thinks ‘self care’ = ‘selfish’. It’s borne out of a long time of serving others – understanding that such service is required.

But – having said all of the above, it’s simply now or never. I need to approach each day in a way that embraces the gift of life given to me and I need to treasure the gift for today and as many days as I am given.
