I continue to marvel that self exploration and discovery can be so challenging and, at times, uncomfortable. In my working/raising a family years, there truly iwas little time for this luxury. As more time for self was added to my day via empty nest and retirement I looked forward with anticipation to this "me" time. I once again failed to apply time to taking care of me. Soon I was too busy and I found myself at the bottom of my priorities all over again. It seems a lifetime of ignoring myself is not easy to undo. After having the excuse of "no time" for so many years, now that I have time I seem to be filling it with more things. I find myself brainwashed that self time is somehow indulgent or am I still seeking approval from some entity?? Aha, there it is.

So 2012 will be my year to work at getting comfortable spending time with myself and for myself. I will give myself permission to enjoy relationships, both personal and spiritual. It is okay to spend time reading or watching a movie. I will pay attention to how many tasks I take on and what is motivating me to do so.

Life balance continues to be elusive but I'm working on it.

    emoticon Not as exhausted tonight, guess I'm getting use to being on my feet 3 hours every night! I think our preschools would have left me even more tired. They are a lively little bunch.
    Hope you had good results in the challenge. I have not been very good with my exercise. I'm not sure what my problem is, no real reason for it. I do know who has to make some changes though.
