Nerd Church - Putting Self-Care At The Top Of My To-Do List

I've had to remind myself so many times, over the years, that it's best to take things one step at a time.

...That I only have two hands.

...That I actually get more done when I relax.

And yet... it's still so hard to do.

Title: Putting Self-Care At The Top Of My To-Do List

I still need to keep reminding myself, over and over again.

Because when I don't remind myself, I overdo it.

  • I put pressure on myself. 
  • I over-work. 
  • I blame myself for every little mistake and perceived shortcoming.
And, to put it bluntly, it's not good for me - either physically or mentally.

Aspiration isn't bad. Wanting to reach for the stars - that's beautiful.

But I always seem to forget that the stars are easier, when I feel good. When I'm well-rested, mentally somewhat OK, well-fed, hydrated, etc...

- then I can just reach up, and pluck those stars from the sky.

One by one.

Easy as that.

So, this isn't a New Year's Resolution - I don't do that. Too much arbitrary, too much pressure, too little realism.

But it is a reminder to myself, yet again, that things go better when I put self-care at the top of my to-do list, and take things slow and steady.

So - how about you?

  1. Cee I really needed this. I think I put pressure on myself to please people, to do things I'm not comfortable doing because they want to. Self-care is about saying no sometimes!

    1. Glad to be of help! :) Gotta do what's right for you, Em! (She said, hoping she'll take her own advice for once! Lol.)
