So, this is what I did today.
I was me-sponsible.
I was responsible for me, my health,my happiness and well being.
What did I do?
1. I ate on my meal plan, although I don’t ever remember feeling hungry or having the urge to eat.
2. I worked on two stories I am writing for my university newspaper due this week.
3. I prepared everything for my first day of school tomorrow.
4. I rested and didn’t exercise, since I injured my neck yesterday.
5. I took a nap because I was tired.
I love the concept of me-sponsible.
I am the kind of person who is always responsible; I am on time to work, I complete my homework assignments a week before they’re due, and I keep track of all my daily tasks in my phone.
But how often do we give ourselves the time we need to be me-sponsible?
I for sure don’t do it enough, but over the past 7 months of recovery, it’s something I’ve learned to make time for in my life.
At one point, self care was something that was a luxury to me.
Getting my nails done, taking a nap, or eating a meal, were luxurious prizes I would award myself with when I restricted.
Now, self care is a priority, not a luxury.
What kinds of things do you enjoy doing when your me-sponsible? (As always, feel free to share, as it brings insight and ideas to myself and other readers).
Call it self care, or call it being me-sponsible, I hope everyone reading this finds some time this week to be kind to themselves, because well deserve it.
Hello to self care now being a priority, hello to being me-sponsible, and hello life.
