SELF-CARE

I will be the first to admit that I "suck" at self-care. I can take care of the needs of all of those around me. I can call myself a good care-giver to my grandkids! I was an excellent care-giver to my husband. But I take lousy care of myself. I don't pay attention to what I eat. I don't exercise. I worry too much. I am filled with stress. I need to pay more attention to self-care. Maybe that will be a good goal for 2015. I am grateful today to have the moments to think about what good self-care will mean to me and to my family.

  1. I can be the same way, Paula. It could be a good concept for both of us in the new year :)

  2. Hi Paula ... sounds a very good thought for 2015 ... try a small step at a time ... good luck with working out the best way forward to look after you ... and of course the other benefit will be you'll feel 'better' too ... life just takes it course ... sometimes a gentle change of direction helps such a lot ... I'm sure the grandkids will help you too ... good luck and have a peaceful weekend - Hilary

  4. I like coming here because you give me so many ideas when it comes to goal setting, etc! Thank you for that, Paula. Also...may I just say that I am right there with you. I will be thinking now of exactly what that means to me and how to go about improving.

  5. That is the very best goal to set for the new year. If there's no YOU due to neglect of self, what would happen to your grandkids? That's why you are supposed to put the oxygen mask on yourself first, should they pop down on an airplane, and then place them on your kids.

    1. Yes, Inger, you are right. I need to correct that this coming year!

  6. Good one, Paula. I'm thinking it's too late for my face .... me, who thought washing off my face at night and applying cold cream was for 'other people.'
    Thankfully, there's always lots left on which to improve!
