Tuesdays Thoughts #thoughts

Last Sunday at church the preacher said some words that have been consistently playing in my head. “You should care about everyone, but you can’t care for everyone.” He said. Story of my life mister pastor, how’d you know? Growing up as the eldest child in the house makes you responsible and that responsibility never seems to really go away.  As I grew older the responsibilities only seemed to increase and I just couldn’t seem to shake myself away.

Over the last couple of years, I have been trying to set aside these “responsibilities” and focus on my goals. Every time I did this I only ended up feeling guilty for doing so seeing as my family seemed to be counting on me. This year I finally said, “I am done” I can’t keep prioritizing other over myself, can I? Even if they are my family, because the fact is they also need to learn how to survive on their own.

“I am committed to being a better person today than I was yesterday. Better thoughts, Better Decisions, Better Actions…”

Of course, the guilt was right there in the back of my throat nagging me all the time. So, when I heard the pastor say this, I felt relief. So, I am not a selfish idiot, my plan actually makes some sense. This was the new record playing in my head. If you work hard and get to a better standing in your life then it will be so much easier to offer counsel, support and assistance to your family.

Therefore, I woke up this morning with renewed strength and confidence. Ready to put thoughts into plans and plans into actions.

A Better Me is Coming! #selflove
