Take Care of Yourself

What's great about today...

I have been thinking lately about the monotony of day to day life. I saw a quote somewhere, who am I kidding, it was on Pinterest, it’s ALWAYS on Pinterest 🙄. “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.”  Boom! Ouch! Wow!  Boy this hit me like a ton of bricks!  I am certainly not gonna sit here and say that I haven’t had some great adventures and that I don’t live a great and fulfilling life, but sometimes I do lay my head down at night and wonder, “Is this it? Am I following my calling?  What is my calling?”  If this is it, then that is perfectly fine, but I honestly don’t think that God allows these thoughts in order to create self doubt. I believe they are for self awakening. I love my little life and I am totally content with my world. But, sometimes I think contentment creates complacency. If we’re  not growing then we’re not glowing. If we’re not glowing then we are not creating light for others to see. If we are standing still then we are NOT fulfilling our potential.   I have created a list of self care tasks. Well really it’s a calendar, I’m kind of nerdy like that. I am challenging myself and you to perform these simple tasks in order to grow ourselves. Let’s call it a reset challenge if you will. I’ve written down only a few things each week. You don’t have to get bogged down by the specific date. I just thought it looked prettier on the calendar this way. Do what you can but make yourself a priority. If you miss something then do it another time. Give yourself grace! Yes, I am also directly talking to myself here 😉. I am a self proclaimed perfectionist and I’m working through this. Grace!  Taking time for yourself is the key.  We must start first with us.  After all, tomorrow is another day!
