Take time for you

We must take time for self.  It is as important as any other work we have in life.  In fact it is more important.  For without taking the time to be the best we can be, to clean out the debris that is keeping us from healing, we are incomplete and therefore unable to be or see, or serve our true purpose.  We're left stumbling around in the dark.

We need to examine our true desires and motives.  We need to know that we own them and they are not leftovers of someone elses' disappointments and unfulfilled dreams.

We need to honor ourselves and give as much thought and consideration as we do to our job, our friends, family and total strangers.  How can we possibly live the life we think we want to live without knowing our authentic self?

We need to release the one we lock up inside while we put on our daily facade we display to other.  The one we think will be pleasing, acceptable, that conforms to what we were taught form childhood.

Who are we really?  Are we living daily the life we would choose or are we going through the motions working at a career we were taught would give us security even if it does not bring us happiness?

Do we try to do too much for others, to be pleasing instead of allowing them to do for themselves?

Take time to examine the real you.  What is it that will allow you to be that authentic self and realize your true happiness?

What is preventing you from being or doing it?  What are you waiting for?

This is your life.  The only one you have at this time.  How do you want to use it?  What do you want to accomplish?  What would you choose if you could?  What things would you let go of, change, rearrange and do differently?

Take time for you!
