Your business/work is very important; but if you let yourself slip too much; your business could also suffer down the road.
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately and this topic hit me hard.
I can't believe that everything I love to do; I haven't even taken the time to do in so long.
How did I get to this point? I need to revisit everything and make a change! I'm assuming that other tasks and responsibilities took over slowly until there was a point where I just didn't do anything that I found such joy in. Activities that spark my imagination, creativity and just being with myself and doing something for myself.
I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens to. People focus on getting somewhere or being better, which is great; but try not to leave a part of yourself behind in the process.
Don't forget about yourself!
Sit down sometime and think of things you would love to get back to that you've lost along the way. Is there something you want to try that you haven't taken the time aside to do for yourself?
Create a bucket list of things you want to do. This is something I am working on for myself right now and its getting me excited to focus on what I want to do and try make it work within my life.
I'm only going to live once (Yes Cheesy I know; but its TRUE)
Or maybe not a bucket list; maybe start with a list of hobbies that you want to get back to that you miss or something you wanted to try or get better at. You can start scheduling a time during the week where its a time for you to take care of yourself.
After reading this; is there something you realise you miss? I hope this motivates you to not only focus on everything that needs to be done all the time (chores, work etc) and change to doing something that will make you happy to do for yourself as well.
A few things I want to get back to myself is reading more, I miss drawing/sketching and yoga!
What about you, is there anything that you miss that you want to start again?
