One of the biggest LIES we tell ourselves is that they don’t have enough time for self-love and self-care. We all have the same God-given 24 hours in a day. What we chose to do in those 24 hours is the deciding factor whether we are ready for growth or better in our lives.
Growth can begin with reclaiming a couple minutes a day for personal growth and development. We have 1440 minutes granted to us each day to do what we very well please. Statistically speaking, investing in education improves people's earning prospects and their ability to contribute to the economy. This directly impacts self-esteem and feelings of worthiness. There is a big misconception that individuals have to go to college to get educated. Education does not begin or end in a classroom, online or on campus. We just have to be willing and motivated to pick up a book that teaches us something we want to learn. Then once we have the book, schedule in time to actually use it. I’m not going to say find the time, because some of us can’t look for shit, lol. If we're asked to find 5 minutes within that pile of 1440 minutes we are given each day, some of us will swear it's impossible.
For anyone to believe that it is impossible to reclaim 5 of the 1440 minutes in our day for our own well-being, is only fooling themselves. Some of us can find hours to watch TV and hours to talk to/message/text others, but not one single one for self-Care. The thing about self-love & self-Care is that no one else can do it for us. Self-love and self-Care is a choice we have to make in the name of Well-being. Those who do not have time for wellness, will soon have time for illness.
Time is our most valuable asset we possess. Once it is wasted, we can not get it back or have a re-do. Life is not short, it’s a long hard road that ends sooner for some. So if you think like I use to think, then why even bother planning or caring about the future, right?! ....WRONG!! If you don’t plan for your future, it already have a plan for you. Granted, you may not like the outcome of the latter.
It all boils down to what we want out of life and what are we willing to let go in order to gain it. We have to find atleast 5 minutes in our day today & everyday for personal growth & development through self-love and self-Care. Create time for those healthy habits that make us feel good inside and out. Pick up a new book that can help you learn something new. Invest our most valuable asset, time, back into our love tanks. If you love to dance then dance, if you love to sing then sing, or simply relax and nothing. Whatever you do, Respect Yo 24!
