Thought I’d share this little gem of wisdom…
lt’s so easy to forget to look after ourselves, to be good to ourselves. We spend so much of our time focussed on other people whether at work or at home in relationships, that sometimes I think we forget that we need our care too.
What am I doing this week for myself? I’m not working on Friday (even though I need the money) so that I can go and take some dance classes. I’ve been fairly stressed lately and nothing makes me feel so in sync and happy as a ballet or contemporary dance class. So this Friday it’s all about giving my body and mind what it needs to relax and feel good about itself!
We’re half way through the week so, everybody out there, you’ve still got time to do something special for YOU.
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. there’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. we can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
Button’s letter to his daughter, from ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’. Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
A beautiful piece of writing from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I love the idea and the reality that there are no rules when it comes to living our lives. We have the ability to re-make ourselves whenever we choose. And why not? We’re multifaceted beings with many different hopes, hates and loves.
So for what it’s worth, I hope everyone is living life being who they want to be. And if you’re not, then become who you want to be.
