I didn't say that I "don't think enough of myself"...
I think that I DO think enough of myself to take better care of myself but my thoughts have gone toward my husband, son or our pets or in mourning my mom's passing, I NEED to think of myself MORE. I need to "make more time" for me. I confess that I FEEL selfish and I WANT things FOR ME. I want TIME for myself. I want to INVEST in myself.

I WANT to write our love story; I have a computer now and I am ready. I have times in the morning after I take my son to school.

I need a break from my autism spectrjm/asperger son. I love him dearly but I AM TIRED. I would like to pamper myself in a spa and enjoy some time alone or with my husband AWAY from home.

I WANT to lose weight and GET IN shape. I am losing a few pounds and inches by increasing my activity and watching my fat and high carb intake.
I NEED to start an exercise regime. I want to BE healthy and LOOK great again. I have gained weight and PUT OFF taking care of me for too long. I have wonderful sexy and formal clothes that I want to wear again...and wear everywhere. I want to make a fashion statement again.
 
I CONFESS that it is EASIER to put other's needs before my own,
it is TIME for me to THINK enough of myself to think of myself MORE!!!!

    This is how I hope to see myself; find myself with the WORTH that I can do and enjoy doing good things for myself and to "think of myself MORE"...what a great idea. You have a great self-image and sometimes after having gone through abuse, our self image can be so damaged, you are proof that healing CAN take place...thank you.

    On the airlines they always tell you to put your air mask on in the event of an emergency. I think the same is important in life we can only help others if we first care for ourselves. What is especially precious is when we find ways to do both with the same action.
