By putting me first, I mean making the time for exercise, taking the time to make healthy meals and finding time in my busy day to relax and do some things that I enjoy doing.
Since starting my etsy business, FourDogDay, my priorities have been screwed up...to say the least. Etsy became the most important thing in my life. It took me a while to figure out that even though etsy allowed me to use my creativity and own my own business..it had taken over my life. It got to where FourDogDay ran me, rather than the other way around and that is never a positive thing.
It took me a long time to realize that I just never felt in "balance" because I rarely carved out a niche of time for me. Now that I am learning to do that, everything else seems to be falling into place and life in general is more calm and peaceful and much more enjoyable.
What nice thing have you done for yourself today?
