Where is your energy and where are your thoughts right now?
Right this minute, if you listed your top 10 priorities, how likely is it that YOU are on that list?
When was the last time you made yourself the number one priority and made time for YOU?

Think about it.
Everything for the kids goes on the calendar almost as immediately as you learn about them: PTA, sporting events, swim and music lessons, fund raisers, practices, tutoring, and teacher conferences.
After the kids, work and spouse probably take precedent. Then come the house choresand family obligations. I'll bet the dog, cat or hamster are probably higher on the list of things to care for than you are.
My friend Trish Campbell mentioned her work place shifted to a 4-day work week and that Friday's are now called "This Is Trish Day". What an amazing concept: dedicating one day a week to our own personal self care!
It's true that a whole day of self care sounds luxurious. But how many of us actually block out any quantifiable time on the calendar at all? It shouldn't be either or, and it doesn't have to be all or nothing.
We can't stop the the external demands on our time and energy, but we can choose how we reorganize the priority list and build in in some ways to pur ourselves first with soul feeding "ME TIME". Squeezing in a bubble bath at the end of the day helps, but that method of self care often comes at the days' end when it's abut surviving for the next day. Planning and protecting "ME TIME" on the calendar is a method to thrive not just survive. We owe it to ourselves to make ourselves the highest priority, or at least as equitable in value to our jobs, spouses kids, and pets!
Don't wait for burnout or fatique to slow you down and pay attention to yourself!
Today's show highlights easy to implement practices and methods to guiltlessly put yourself first so that you can serve others at a higher, more energized, engaged and purposeful way.
Author Trish M. Campbell talks about her "Love Me" journey, that includes stepping away from trying to check all the boxes and putting others first. We'll talk about her poetry that came from that journey that continues to feed her "LOVE ME" mission that empowers others to live, work and play with a sense of self and freedom.
Tune in to hear the inspiring words of a woman who chose to be her own advocate and live the authentic life she was meant to live.
