Who is the most important person in YOUR life?
If you don’t immediately answer that with your name then it’s likely you are not being very well supported and life is likely pretty stressful. Why would this cause more stress? To put it simply, the only person in this world that you CAN control is YOU. You can control when you go to bed, what you put in your mouth and whether you spend a little alone time each day to center yourself.
You can’t change what other people do and i’m certain that is a good thing. What you can change is what you do. Why is this important? If you are not supported, fulfilled, happy (choose your own adjective) then YOU can’t support those around you. I know other people are important in your lives and I’m not saying to leave them out on a limb all alone while you take time for yourself, but I am asking you to take time for yourself first. Without your own personal happiness, you will fail, at some point, to support the people that are important to you.
I have urged most of you to take a little personal time to sit in quiet, reflect and just breathe for the purpose of relieving stress, but now I ask you to do it so you can support those that you love in your life. It’s important to me that I support all of you which is why I make it a point to support myself. You should do the same.
