Setting priorities

This last weekend, I thought that I was going to recharge my brain, but must admit that it didn't happen as planned.  I know part of that is my own fault because I didn't set the recharge as a priority for myself.

I am one of those that tries to make sure that everything is done that involves others, but I forget that I need to focus on myself sometimes to get that recharge that everyone needs.  It's been a challenge for me to remember that I need to put myself first sometimes, and I am slowing learning that if I want to have the energy to do everything else I need to put myself first, so I can recharge.

The goal over the next few days is to try and focus some time on things that I want to do for myself and make sure that I take those times as I know it will help me in the long run.  I am putting this in writing so that I make sure that I do it and over the next three days which includes today I am setting aside 3 hours each day to do things for me.  Now, to make sure that I really do this, I am going to set appointments with myself to ensure that I remember to take this time.

The me time is going to be set aside to try and write a bit more than I have done lately, or even to read or to do anything that is just for me. Appointments have been set until Friday of this week, so will see how it goes and will post an update after this week is up.
