I was reading some blogs this morning and one hit home with me. It was comparing ourselves to a car. It was stated to "keep your paint job pretty, it makes you feel better while you're driving around". (Indygirl) It made so much sense to me.
In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I often put me on the bottom of my to-do list. Why? I don't know - habit, guilt, whatever. Why should I, though? I'm important! I should keep myself up for me, for my family, to be able to do for others.
What this means to me: eat right, exercise and sleep enough, take care when something is wrong. It means so much more, though. Get up and get dressed in the morning. Dress nicely. Do the make-up and hair - and this means taking care of skin and hair. Nails -I tend to remember the fingernails more than the toenails. No more! I will remember both.
But...in addition to keeping the paint nice, I have to keep the insides running right. Yes, diet and exercise are on the list. I do tend to forget about the brain. I must not be nurturing it enough. So, I suppose I must remember to read more, challenge it more, comfort it more. Comforting it more means reaching out to family and friends, doing something new, and doing the things that I enjoy.
I keep chasing the perfect schedule. There is no such thing in this game of life. Just do it!
