How many times have you heard someone say that you have to look out after yourself? But do you hear that question……do you actually hear it? The simple truth of the matter is that you do no one any good, especially yourself, if you do not take the time to do something that you like to do.
I enjoy reading FB pages about the busiest people I know because the smart and busiest people I know, know they MUST also take the time for themselves. I love seeing pictures of a walk, a run, tending a garden, showing a picture of a cloud, a meal, and even being with a friend. That informs me immediately that they are doing what they need to do to find SOME time to get away from…….well everything.
A motor cannot run forever. It’s impossible. It’ll eventually burn out. We aren’t a motor, nor an engine; we are people and our burnout is as much a mindset as a moving part. YOU MUST take time for you.
So today I ask, “what do you do to just forget about life for a while?” Where is your escape? What do you do? What do you listen to? Who do you see? If you say that you are just too busy, I suggest you change that; and quickly. If you are too busy to find time for you….you are too busy. Period.
So please share what you do to escape? I love listening to Broadway Show music. Run. Walk. Or sitting in my room with a fan on; and listening to Broadway Show tunes puts me away from everything going on…….my escape. What do you do? Share?
