Create A Life You Love

Self-Care

Selfish?? I think not.

Some people think that spending time on yourself means that you are taking time away from other things that are oh so important. If I spend 30 minutes meditating or dancing around the house like a crazy person to help myself feel liberated, that's time I could have spent on schoolwork, playing with my kids, working on my business... Whatever the case may be. Society has painted an image that makes one feel guilty when they take time to pamper themselves or simply just.stop.moving for any period of time. So what happens when you exhaust all of your energy on outside stimulants? Sometimes it's boredom with the routine, resentment, stress, maybe you even feel it in your body - getting sick more often, little more stiff in the morning these days... Self care is important. Take time to treat yourself just for being an amazing individual. You know when you're in a relationship with someone and the spontaneity keeps the spark alive, the same applies to self love. Surprise yourself with a gift or a random compliment. Just try it. See how these small daily modifications change not only how you feel about yourself but how you treat those around you as well.

Think of yourself. The time for compromising your needs and your time is no longer upon you. Find balance before things get too uneven. Go BEASTMODE For Yourself! You are and deserve to be #1 on your priority list. If you are drained/off balance, you will not be able to live up to your full potential or be able to serve your purpose as wholly as you could be. Realize, this is not selfishness. This is what must be done. Allow yourself to put yourself first. Come back into focus. You are worthy of your own time spent wisely. This is all part of self love and self awareness.

You deserve the purest love and happiness this life has to offer.

Live In Love,

Time for yourself is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
