It is a new week and I thought to start it off with a very important message for you "Make A Decision To Choose You." I learned this idea over the years, the importance of choosing yourself daily. As a business owner, wife, mother of two with varying other life responsibilities I found that my default was always doing things for others and never choosing to do things for myself. The decision to choose you does not mean you are not present for other people, but it is a choice to ensure that you are not forgetting yourself.
The decision to “choose you” is taking a step daily towards the person you have imagined to be, to build the company you have dreamt of, and to live the life you desire to live. For me, I have found that I need to make a cautious decision to wake up earlier so I can have an hour or two to myself to do something that matters to me, like prayer and exercise and other days I choose to do a project on my short or long term goals and devote my first hour of work towards that.
I know my day will be filled with many other things so the choice to do first something for me allows me to give the best of myself to everything else. You have to be intentional about this choice. When you start off your week decide in advance what your schedule will be for each day and what you choose to do the first hour of your day for yourself before the demands of the day come knocking.
