My Priorities Were Waaaay Out of Whack

Hi!

How are you? Let me guess. Busy? Life is crazy? You have so much going on? If only I had a penny for every time I heard that…

We tell ourselves that so damn much nowadays, that we actually believe we have zero time. I know because I was that person! In reality, my priorities were out of whack.

We work, take the kids where they need to be, eat, sleep, maybe work a second job- life is crazy. It’s easy to look at a to-do list and not want to take on anything else. But here is my question. When it comes to your priorities- are YOU there? 

I’m willing to bet you can find 30 minutes in your schedule to workout, 15 minutes to take a bath and read, 20 minutes to take a walk. Yeah, you may get up a little earlier or stay up late– but you’re doing something for YOU. You’ll never regret that, mama.

I’ll be 40 this year and I’m here to tell you there is no perfect time & life doesn’t get any less crazy. There will always be something you have to do, places you have to be, someone that’s counting on you. 

But girlfriend, ya gotta stop putting everyone’s needs before your own. Put your oxygen mask on FIRST. That’s the only way you can give your best to those around you. 

My challenge to you: When someone asks you how you are, instead of “busy”— try saying: “Amazing!!”

Xoxo,

Dara
