I start out with good intention. I am going to stick up for me today. I am going to go for a walk at lunch so I can get some down time before starting the afternoon. Unfortunately, it always turns out the same: I decide that I need to look over the paperwork over lunch, distribute those faxes to the correct people. I sometimes think that I am cast in the movie Groundhog Day.
I have always been that person who puts myself on the back-burner and made sure everyone else had what they needed. It can be work, family or friends. I think one main thing I know being in my fifties is this needs to change. It is my turn and I need to learn to take care of me.
You may ask how do you change course? For me it is small steps. I have decided I am going to start a Zumba class near me. I have always wanted to try Zumba and it will allow me to meet new people. I also am looking into taking an advanced photography course.
The second part of my plan involves rewarding and nurturing myself. I am going to use those massages I have accrued. I am going to Phipps and enjoy. My list of rewards will grow and I will share them
I decided to share this because I think there are more people who may need to change the path we are following. I would like to hear some of your ideas.
