Day in and day out every single person that breathes and walks this earth lives and does for someone other than themselves. We cry and complain to have just a moment of our own time. We have at some point abandoned our families and divorced our husbands and wives because we think just for a moment if I could have time to myself. I would feel better, I need TIME to myself, I need to be alone. We do not take into consideration that we’ve made it this far because we push and fight so much for everyone else. We love others so much that we keep striving for everyone else. That moment we need and the TIME we think we need so much of can be adorned and consumed.
If we can fight and strive for others and to make all the time in the world for others, then we surely can create time for ourselves on a daily basis. I’m not speaking of time to check Facebook, Instagram, and even our blogs. I’m speaking of time to clear our minds, time to feel ourselves inhale and exhale. Time to realize that we took in a breath of fresh air. Time to say I conquered my troubles today, I smiled when I could have frowned. When we can say I had a moment to myself and it was so relaxing, I got to enjoy myself, I CREATED the opportunity to make time for me and to do something for myself by myself.
I get it, life is so busy and hectic, we barely have time to eat, time to think, time to drink some water, time to use the bathroom. So much is going on we are forgetting things and pushing them over into the next day, making us unable to complete each and everyday. We have habitually carried each and every yesterday into each and every new day. Do we even have a dream anymore? Do we have an actual favorite book that we recently read? Do we have a favorite color? What’s your favorite hobby? What makes you relax besides crashing in the bed (sometimes getting a shower and sometimes taking a bird bath)?
We can name all of the favorite things of others, by others, I mean the ones we love and sacrifice so much for. The ones we create and make so much time for. The ones we eventually stop loving because we have no more love to give because we stopped loving the person that loves those others. We want to run away from all of those people we love because we have given all we are capable of giving. We have not given much if anything at all to self, we have forgotten all about self, we have abandoned self. We are blaming that lost much needed time and those necessary lost moments on others because we have poured it all on them. What I want you to know is this is all OUR own fault, we have chosen to forget about self. We chose to not think about self, and not to have our moments and time. Do not, I repeat DO NOT leave the ones you have fought so hard to love and be there for. Let them know that you need, want, and deserve YOUR OWN LOVE too and start doing for you what you did for them.
Fifteen minutes a day, just to enjoy yourself, your time, and have your moments. Fifteen minutes a day to not leave your loved ones, to not abandon them and to not divorce them. Take fifteen minutes just for you PLEASE!?!?
Remember YOU make time for those you LOVE make one of those people you love be YOU!!!
