I have always put other people before myself. I always have and probably always will. It's just my nature. I love to do for others, but I've learned that taking time for me is really important.
Three years ago during the year before my 60th birthday, I really made a point of thinking about me. I made the effort to think about myself and to do the things that I wanted to do. It didn't mean that I had to stop doing for others. It just meant that I had to make the time for me too and I did.
It was amazing how good me time felt. Did I deserve the time? Yes! Did I enjoy the time? Yes! Was I still involved with all the other things that I was involved in before? Yes! Was I still there for my family? Yes! Was it one of the best things I have ever done for myself? Yes Yes Yes!!!
