Own It

Put Your Own Mask on First. I was struck by this phrase again.

I'm not sure about you, but I feel a lot of guilt when I take care of myself. Say, I'd like to take some me time.
Or buy stuff for myself. I don't have issues taking time to care for others or buying stuff for family.
But when time comes it is something for myself, I think and ponder for a long time first if I really deserve it.

That phrase reminds me that taking care of myself is not something selfish.
If I take care of myself better, then I can take care those I love much better too.
Because I'll be in my better self to do that.

Wake Up to the Joy of You

Technically, I wasn't able to read this book. (Too bad, I'm a bit regretting it now. Next time, I'll make sure my gadget is working well to enjoy a good book like this.)

Initially, I thought this book won't interest me at all. Though I like books in this category, I'm not really into meditations (but I enjoy quiet times, reading).

The table of contents reminds me that I'm not alone. The chapters listed pinpoints the issues I'm also struggling with, like "Make Your Health a Priority", "Worry and the Soul", "Managing Your Energy", "Money, Money, Money!", "God is Your Partner" and a whole lot more.

Knowing that someone (or more likely, others) also struggled with the same topics, I'm finding hope that I'll also overcome these.

Now, I think I'll head to a nearby bookstore to look for this book. I'm still a bit old school when it comes to books. Though I enjoy the convenience and portability of ebooks, I love the companion of physical books and good coffee ;)
