I TOOK some time for #selfcare
and my 2nd ever #haircolor
experience. I'm learning new things about life, about myself and about how to TAKE time. I'm a #giver
...I don't say that in pride or expectation of appreciation...I mean, I'm so used to giving that sometimes I feel guilty when I take. Well, I always feel guilty when I take.
I give my time and my energy. I give my talents, skills and intelligence. I give my spare moments and some that aren't so spare. All in an effort to help those around me enjoy life and have the best they can in moments we share. But if I'm honest, I give too much.
I was at a leadership conference recently and one speaker used his time to talk about the importance of taking time for self care. To renew, refresh, to stop and smell the proverbial roses. So, I decided to #beintentional
in giving myself permission to take. In small moments, and maybe eventually even in big ones. ❤
It's not about being selfish (that's completely different motivation) and it's not about entitlement. It's about growing and being the best you at all times, so that you can be the best for others. The focus remains outward, but the attention must be shared inward and outward. Therein lies the philosophy of self care.
