What was one thing that you did today that you actually truly enjoyed? I am asking you this question because it always blows my mind how most of us spend so much of our time doing things for other people and not enough for ourselves. We try to meet the expectations of our boss, we make sure our families are protected and have everything they need, we go above and beyond for our friends and yet…
What about us?
Most of us go several days if not several weeks or even several months without doing a single thing that we actually enjoy doing. We always look out for everyone else but what about ourselves?
When was the last time you paid attention to your own health and mental well-being?
When was the last time you took an afternoon to relax and work on a passion project of yours?
Let Go Of The Guilt
I think one of our flaws as human beings is that we tend to carry enormous amounts of guilt. Especially, when it comes to taking time to focus on ourselves.
In today’s fast-paced society, we seem to always be expected to be connected and always working.
But what about our mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical health? Don’t those things matter anymore?
What happened to living a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle?
Most of us don’t even know what that means.
I am guilty of this often times as well.
Let go of your guilt.
Take care of yourself.
The rest of the world can wait a few minutes.
