Take the Ish out of Selfish Now

Doing something nice for herself didn't make her selfish or take anything away from anyone else. She decided it was time to take the "ish" out of selfish. - Queenisms™

We’ve all done it and we’ll probably all do it again – put our own selves on the very bottom of our enormous “to do” list and find ourselves overwhelmed, exhausted and a little bit resentful. Here’s the thing. Somewhere along the line we got the message that taking care of ourselves was selfish. We interpreted that to mean that even following our dreams was selfish. This nonsense has to stop. When we value, respect and care for ourselves, we’re modeling healthy behavior for our children, our friends and those we love. We’re also signaling to the world that we believe we deserve to be treated respectfully. That doesn’t mean we won’t get overwhelmed or even sometimes treated badly. But it does mean we’ll be starting from a place of self-worth and not from the bottom of the well of low self-esteem. If you haven’t done something nice for yourself in a while, isn’t today a good day to start? Let’s take the ish out of selfish.
