A couple of times a year I take a long hard look at myself and take inventory.
I try to see what's missing, but mostly I feel something is missing.
The missing piece almost always turns out to be bankruptcy in self-care, a common theme for many of us.
I feel I'm good at nurturing family and friends, (at least I hope so) and I know I'm very good at nurturing my pets.
So this week is for me. I'm going to limit blogging and emails to a few stolen moments here and there. I will eliminate phonecalls unless it's an emergency.
I will meditate daily. I will take walks and eat well.
And I will pour myself into long neglected painting projects.
At the end of the day I'll go to bed early with books that have been calling to me and I will probably fall asleep after two pages.
So friends, I'm not checking out.
I'm checking in, with myself ;)
