Take Care

I have noticed that I am at as much risk as anyone else for being overworked and underfed... And, it will take it's toll on me. All it takes in this world is for us to get caught up in everything and everybody else and we forget what's most important. Ever hear the saying if you don't take care of yourself how can you care for anyone else? I believe that to be most true... I realized this as I got pretty sick this past week- and I wasn't the only one suffering. At home, being alone with my two boys, safe to say the wheels officially fell off the bus. It is hard to keep up with kids when your not feeling your best! They are fast and full of the energy I used to have! For my clients, my poor clients... I had to cancel my whole week. I couldn't very well cook anybodies food while sick- not that I had the energy mind you... So this got me thinking, taking a look at myself... How important is it for us to slow down and prioritize? What are your most important priorities? What's first? What's last? Why? Maybe, sleeping in shouldn't mean 6am instead of 4:30am...


  1. Amen, sister!! Tom and I were talking about this yesterday...when he called me at 10:45 and I had just gotten out of the bed! We were both worn out after our own hard weekend of running ragged and needed some tending-to-selves-time. We are looking for a night or two to get away and regroup but at least got our Sunday-night-in time to recharge a little. Sometimes grabbing it when we can is the best we can do! Hugs-

  2. I understand CN! I think you and Tom may need a big "adult timeout"... xoxo
