When life takes over, and you find that your day has disappeared before you've finished all your tasks, and you wonder if you will ever get to do something for yourself, think on this quote, called The Song of the Partisan:
"If I’m not for myself;
Who will be for me?
If not this way, how?
If not now, when?"
Life will always throw chores at you. There will always be someone wanting your time.
Your Project of the Day is to schedule time for yourself. Try to find at least 20 minutes a day to do something for yourself, and try and make that something fun and creative. Write your journal, begin planning that novel, get out your drawing pad and pencils, grab a mini book project or scrap page.
If you don't know how to begin, take the quote above, and create a plaque for you to hang up where you will see it to remind you.
Take time for yourself, even if you need to get up that bit earlier to find your quiet time, or stay up that little bit later. Taking 'Me' time is just as good as an extra 20 minutes in bed, and I'm sure you'll sleep better for it.
