Give the Gift of Taking Care of Yourself

Give the Gift of Taking Care of Yourself is an original, trademarked digital art piece and writing by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She was the one in charge of making herself happy. Once she got over the uncomfortable feeling of putting herself first, she realized what a gift it was to herself and everyone around her. – Queenisms™

When we’ve slipped into the habit of putting everyone and everything before our own happiness, it can be uncomfortable to change the rules. Those who’ve been on the top of our list might not be pleased to moved to the side or down a notch. That doesn’t mean they’ll be forgotten or neglected. It just means we’ll be refreshed, renewed and revived because we took time to sleep, eat, shower, rest and nurture our creative selves so we could show up, with love and without resentment, to do support and love others. It may take patience and practice as we teach others not to be threatened by our new philosophy to put ourselves on our own list. But we promise you that with consistency and practice, those who matter will come around. Practice these phrases that help us:

  • I will check my schedule and get back to you.
  • I’m going to have to pass this time but I love you and just know you’ll be able to take care of it without me.
  • I’m busy today but let’s put something on our calendars soon, shall we?
  • No.

Is there a phrase that helps you carve out time for yourself?
