In the past year, I’ve been making an attempt to put myself first. We are always raised as little kids to put others before ourselves but I realized when your an adult it’s very hard to do so. I’m the kind of person that always wants to be ahead of the game. I sign myself up for things I don’t even like and make promises I don’t want to keep. The real question is.. why? I started reflecting on my life and I realized that time is valuable. How you spend your time and who you spend it with truly makes a huge impact on your happiness. All of this sounds really self centered but I came to conclusion that it’s ok to put yourself first. Once you start making your own choices and doing things that you like, your life falls into place. I have always been driven by inspiration and passion; if I hate something.. I am really going to hate it. Once you fill your life with inspiring and fulfilling things, all the puzzle pieces start coming together.
Although this is a lot easier said than done. It all starts with truly having a “focus” in your life and creating goals. You have to ask yourself, “What do I really want?”. It’s a lot easier to have goals so you know when it’s the right time to be “selfish” and what to focus on.
