Question Giving MORE to others?

Hello everyone...anyone...everybody?

Do you ever feel like or have you felt like in some point in your life that you gave more to others that you have given or give to your self?

This is a daily struggle for me...I can be sooo strong, confident, wise with advise, helpful for others...but not for ME?

I can muster up the COURAGE to do for others..because I feel at a given moment they are more important...I can come-back to ME and my needs later...the later never comes?

I think that this is very typical of moms and women everywhere. It's in our nature, for a lot of us, to take care of others first and neglect ourselves.

That's definitely the main thing that I've done differently this time. I've made getting my exercise each day the top priority. Everyone in the house knows that 9-11 each morning is Mom's time and they can't interfere with it. I even gave up the volunteer work that I was doing in our church office in the mornings. So yes, I'll probably be going to he**, but I'll look and feel good when I get there!

LOL mthrgoose... u will NOT go to **** for taking care of u... and u r right... its something that we all deal with on a daily basis... and yet we have to make time for us. I have found that i need that time so that i am a better mom, friend, wife... person. If i am not happy with me then how can anyone else be.
