Just Saying — We Deserve to Put Ourselves First Sometimes…
I want to share this inspirational quote with the Shoutout Edmonton Community because I think it’s an important reminder.
Sometimes we spend so much time taking care of our families and friends but we forget about ourselves. It’s ok to say no sometimes to others and yes to ourselves. Sometimes that bubble bath, that Netflix binge, that epic sleep in, that escape to an ocean are exactly the fuel that we need in order to be healthy and happy.
We deserve to put ourselves first sometimes just like we put our family and friends first sometimes. This can be a hard practice but it is so important. Practice boundaries, like if you’re recently recovering from a back injury and your friend asks for help moving. You could offer to help them pack or unpack instead, or offer to deliver beverages and snacks on moving day, or offer to drive the moving truck instead.
There are many options as opposed to risking further injury to yourself.
Let’s all remember to love ourselves first so that we can be there to give our love to others!
