Take Care of You!

I came across this the other day and it made me think.  I know we look at a lot of these kind of things, but do you ever really SEE them?  

We all know you should take care of yourself physically.  Taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally is just as important.  I think working on this aids in success in whatever you are trying to accomplish.   It may be weight loss, a new relationship, letting go of a relationship, dealing with children, etc.  If you don't put yourself first and work on yourself it's harder to achieve whatever goals you have set.  If you work on your life, you can give much more to others.

Take a look at areas in your life that you can improve on.  On that list, my biggest problem is that I am a people pleaser.  I tend to go along with things I don't don't want to do or don't believe in just because I don't want others to get mad at me.  That is a silly way to live.  I count!  I have my own opinions!  Right?  I am getting better, especially after this year of "finding myself", but I still have some work to do in that area :)

Take care of yourself.  Mentally, physically, emotionally.  Get your life in order.  Be strong. Put yourself first, and you can accomplish anything!


"Taking good care of you means
 the people in your life will receive the best of you, 
rather than what's left of you."

  1. Thanks for this post! I struggle with thinking negatively about myself and letting go of what I can't control.

  2. Love this! I've had to work a lot on letting go of what I can't control, and trusting my instincts.

  3. I am sooooo much a people pleaser! I've been trying to really work on that...and to that regard I've had to let go of some toxic people....people that were using me and people that couldn't handle it when I started to stand up for myself. It's a lonely journey (since I purged friends), but I'm working on it!
