“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.” -Sye Wells
My days are normally pretty full. I have 3 kids, one who is 10 months and two who live with us half-time, a business that I love and am continually trying to grow, a home to manage, amazing friendships to foster, a husband to support and love… oh yeah and then there’s me.
I find it generally pretty easy as a woman to take care of people around me. It comes with a certain ease and fulfillment and that innate sense to care for others is wonderful. It is part of who I am as a sensitive, loving woman. I feel grateful to have been blessed with all I have… my children, my husband, a beautiful home, and career doing what fuels me. But in all of my going and doing and accomplishing, sometimes I admit that taking care of myself is not as easy as taking care of everyone and everything around me. In the midst of all I have “to do”, I find myself going and going and running around at what feels like 90 mph. I am busy! I have a lot to do! I find myself getting irritated with husband at times when he doesn’t do this or that and I am, in turn, whirling around our house in a wild frenzy.
