It's Okay to Prioritize Yourself
I know I need to exercise, but I have to fold the laundry first.
I know I need to relax, but I have so many errands to run this weekend.
I'm so tired, but I need to work on this to do list another hour.
This was me.
But, I no longer had the will to listen to the little voice in my head that said I needed to take care of everyone else's needs before I take care of mine.
There are times when I WILL have to put my family first. An illness for, example. However, I have learned to say that I'm doing this for me, for the first time in years.
My health had to come first. I saw myself in the mirror and wondered if I would ever be able to look close to what I looked like before my first child was born. I wasn't skinny, but I liked looking at myself in the mirror then. Eating healthy and exercise had to be first in my life.
Rest and relaxing more had to be scheduled because stress was literally making me sick. I couldn't focus. I was breaking out all of the time. I was dealing with stomach aches frequently.
Thank God I changed my eating habits and started an exercise routine that worked for me. It helped reduce those stressful feelings in my life.
