I think I forgot something....
So I have a solid 45 hours a week with paid work for someone else. On top of that I have side projects and creative projects for money and overall fulfillment too. I've been going going going that I completely forgot the most important thing....my Self. I have not been putting myself first lately. I'm not talking about being selfish and screwing everybody else...I am talking about loving my body, mind, and soul and taking care of it properly.
I have decades of life left and what am I going to show for it? That I paid my bills on time by sacrificing my own needs? That I spent years of my life staring at a computer screen in a small room instead of enjoying the nature/sun outside? That I ate crap food because I didn't have time to cook a healthy meal for myself? That I spend the best years of my life not doing what I love?
I forgot what life means. I forgot the purpose of life. I am very grateful for my body, mind, and soul carrying me through this learning experience. I am very grateful that I can make a new choice and go in a new direction in any moment. I am very grateful that I have the resources to improve my life and all I need to do is take a step in a new direction where I can have it all....health, love, life, money, happiness. I am learning balance and I am grateful my universe is patient with me as I grow and evolve.
Thank you to those who support me and to those who remind me to take it easy. I love you all. Remember to take care of yourself too along your own journey. What it means to take care of ourselves means something different to each and every one of us. We each have to find our own truth and figure out what is best for us. Remember to think about each aspect of yourself: body, mind, soul/heart, and figure out if you're neglecting taking care of one or the other. Life is a balancing act and we are all pretty agile if we just realize we are.
In gratitude, Elizabeth

I always tell people to never rush their work. Take a time to unwind and rest. You don't have to push yourself in finishing your work. It will all come into pieces at the end. Focus on your agenda for the day and never over exert yourself. You'll only exhaust yourself, mentally and physically.
