You may be expecting an article about making time to write or blog...maybe tomorrow, but for today I want to talk about making time for you. I've written about the importance of self-care, but it's worth repeating. I need to repeat it for myself. I'm probably the biggest offender. We did't go on a honeymoon because "this isn't a good time, let's go in a few years when things settle down". We don't take family vacations "because things are hectic now, let's wait until next year". We intended to go on date night several times each month, and you guessed it, we are lucky to go twice each year because "it's just a hassle to find a sitter, and maybe next month there will be more time".
The truth is, none of us are guaranteed tomorrow. A cancer diagnosis, heart attach, or car accident could be right around the corner. Caring for ourselves means making the most of the here and now. I don't recommend quitting your job or racking up credit card debt. There likely will be may more tomorrows to enjoy, but stop putting of the things that mean the most to you. Remind yourself and your loved ones that the best gift you can give or receive is the gift of time. Put down your phone, look someone in the eyes, and tell them what they mean to you. I guarantee you'll never regret it.
May your paths be abundantly filled with lemons, sugar, sunshine, and people who matter enough to create moments that matter!
