Love your neighbor as you would love yourself
I heard that commandment yesterday and it got me thinking......Why is it so easy to love everyone else but sometimes it is so hard to love ourself? Especially as women we have so many to take care of and we put ourselves on the back burner. We are so busy taking care of everyone elses needs that ours are forgotten. I say it's time to start thinking more about ourselves. To even start loving ourselves. Because when you love yourself everything else seems to fall in to place. My excuse to avoid self care is that I don't have time, when really when you think about it , there are 24 hours in a day so 1 hour out of that to exercise or take a walk is like nothing. My kids always say (lovingly of course) If Momma aint happy nobody's happy. I think it is safe to say that is absolutely the truth!
