For the past few months, I’ve put a lot of things on hold. I thought I’d be accomplishing a lot of things but one thing I forgot to look after – my own self.
I was busy organizing everyone’s life that I overlooked one particular life that means so much to me – my own!
I’ve noticed that I’ve been feeling down, moody and just “blah”.
Sometimes we thought the things that occupy our time are just mere distractions to a better and bigger project or task, one thing I forgot was that the little “here and there’s” are an important factor of being happy – for your own self.
Just now, while writing this note, I notice how the sun shines through my window. It’s 40 degrees in New Jersey and yet, I can feel the warmth of this beautiful star. Its radiance is a reminder that every day is a indeed a beautiful day no matter how bad the night before might have seem.
I’ve put aside a lot of things :
2) Writing about anything – a tree, a child’s excitement, cooking, or just what the sky looks like at a certain moment;
3) Reading for pleasure – not online but to sit and just enjoy a nonsensical book, a romance or just any book that used to be interesting;
But then this morning, I had an epiphany!
It’s time to be creative – for me, me and me!
It's time to have quality time with myself!
In making ends meet, I overlooked that I have to tend to myself; otherwise, I might just be this grumpy, bitter, BLAH person directing everyone’s life!
So this morning after I walked my 8yo to school ( all bundled up in layers!), I went down to my basement and did a 45 minute yoga-cardio. I just finished and it actually felt good my creative thinking cap is working again!
I think for next Tuesday, I’ll sign-up for that $15 90 minute yoga in this new place in our town by the river – AlluemYoga.com. My friend is trying it out today and I think next week, I’ll splurge and give myself a nice treat!
I think I can see a smile sneaking in already
