✏️ 25 Notes To Self: An Advent Calendar of Self-Reflection 🌷 ✍️ 6/25 On Not Leaving Yourself Off Your Own List

Now this one… this is something that you need to continually practice. And you know why? Because every time you leave yourself *off* the list, things start to get a little shaky. And every time you say to yourself, Jane, this doesn’t work remember? Leaving yourself off your own list is a terrible idea.
So what does that mean exactly, to include oneself on one’s own list?
It means that what is important to you matters. And that you need to make time for it.
That taking time out for yourself is not a luxury; it’s a sanity inducing necessity.
It means checking in with yourself to see when you say “yes” to something that it’s a full arse yes (or a full arse no) and no a half-arsed one. Half arsing your yes’s and no’s means that everyone gets short-changed and ain’t nobody got time for that.
So when you are able…
… ride your horse.
… take the time out.
…read the book.
But as a start point, not an endpoint.
Don’t leave yourself off your own list.
❤️ Jane
