    Thank you for the Birthday wishes. Putting myself first is difficult since I was conditioned to putting others first. But, to use lyrics from Barbra Streisand's Ordinary Miracles "Change can come on tiptoe, love is where it starts. It resides, often hides, deep within our hearts..." I'm committed to making good changes for me, one step at a time.

    I have an imaginary boundary around me and don't allow anyone to cross it.

    If I don't take care of myself, I'm good to no one else.
  • I put God first then prioritize the rest of my time.
  • Putting yourself first is not selfish!
  • people should always be the number in their own lives
  • Very important to put yourself first! And be sure to have some "me time!"
  • Thanks for the birthday wish, the article on take time for ME! every one must take time no matter what or burn out can happen. I was a good one for not being able to say no when I was asked to volunteer when my daughter's were young, I never took the time for me. Now that I am retired I am really enjoying my time, I also live one day at a time, I am able to let go of issues that I cannot control that happen yesterday if they need attention I resolve it, and tomorrow may never be mine. I enjoy every precious moment in a day, when I meet some I like to share if they want to talk socializing is great. I love to eat well and try to get some kind of exercise in at least 4 times a week.

    Thank You for the birthday wish, I am now on this sight again. i started this sight when it was the older sight, and got used to it and when it changed. I got confused and stopped using it. Now I am back. I have bought a fitbit and am again putting myself first.

  • Thank you for my birthday wishes and the article on putting yourself first! I really appreciate it. I am turning 66- and I have seen more days in the past than I will see in the future. That is ok- I am purposefully living the remainder of my days with intention and a healthy lifestyle.
    I know that I will be passing someday into Eternal Life with My Creator. I don't want to rush the process for sure.
