Is it more important to you to be able to help yourself, help your family, help your friends, help your society, or help the world?
Helping my family comes first for me. I rate looking after them above everything else.
For nearly twenty years of my life I was very busy juggling my career, postgraduate training and education, and my family. Although I got everything done for my family that I needed to do, it was all very rushed about.
For the past few years, I have taken an extended leave of absence from work to look after my family full time. Small wonder then that I put helping my family above everything else.
While doing all this, I sometimes tend to neglect myself . This tends to defeat my original purpose since you cannot care for others if you are less than optimal yourself. I am incorporating self care into my daily routine. I hope this will be good for my family too.
