Make time for yourself because you matter! How often do I take meaningful time for me? Fruitful Thursdays are all about checking in with oneself.
The hustle and bustle of the week can be overwhelming. You are working (sometimes more than one job) to support yourself and your family. You are trying to attend appointments, complete homework, run errands, and the list goes on and on. My favorite question (Does it ever end?) haunts me all week. The answer is no, but it can end, and you begin if only for a moment.
If only for a moment, enjoy the fruits of your labors with only YOU. Take a stroll, go shopping, climb a tree, go to the spa, walk on the beach/lake, write in your journal, etc. Who knows you better than you? DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! For that moment in time allow everything else to hold.
Today, I took a walk around my subdivision. That was my ME time. My mental well being thanks me for it. Yours will to.
