"Take a Hike!!" busy-ness

Goodness! Things can certainly get busy around here. So much so that I realized that I had jumped onto the treadmill of "get this task done, then this one, then this

one, then this one..........." like I did in my corporate days. I was HIGHLY productive, people were

happy with my job performance, income was good....but something was missing. Oh yeah, time to breath and just be me. And here I was, on my dream property falling back into those same old habits....well, without the well-paid aspect...LOL!

So I sat myself down and gave myself a stern talking to. "Self, you are just running on a treadmill again." says Me. "But I have so much to do! There's so much to build, to learn, to create!" says Self. "Yep, and you moved here to make this place somewhere for others to learn all of that BUT the biggest lesson is "To love yourself" along the way." says Me.

Breathe in.....breathe out....repeat

I am happy to report that no animal went without food, water, and lovin' when I took the time to go walk by our creek. No plant died because I didn't get the garden weeded that very moment. We will not starve because I didn't get the cold crops in the ground at the right time. And, Self is feeling a bit better because she took some time to love herself.

Take the time to care for yourself. You only get one you and you are worth the effort. Don't worry so much about "What will people think!?" It is OK to say, "No, I can't do that right now." and you don't have to explain why. Eventually, others will see how well you are doing being you and the just might learn to be them by the example you set.

I met some new friends that live down near the creek.
