There is a difference between being self-ist and being selfish – putting yourself first doesn’t mean you have to put everyone else last.
The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so put yourself first today and make yourself as interesting as possible. While it is not possible for you to be your top priority every day, it’s important to have your own needs met if you want to have the energy it takes to be there for everyone else.
As you work through all the things on your to-do list, make sure you find time for something just for you. It might be that you exercise, stop for a coffee at your favourite café, call a friend or read a chapter of a book. Whatever you choose, make sure that you do something each day that you really do enjoy. Your life will be happier for it.
You only have one life. Make sure that yours is one you are happy to be living.
