Do you please other first? or yourself first?
Pleasing others before yourself and trying to make others happy is something that many people do. It is most important to do what pleases you and what is in alignment with your values. Doing what’s most important to you gives you energy and enthusiasm to do what you want for others. Doing what’s most important to you is taking care of yourself so that you can take care of the most important people in your life.
Pleasing yourself first is a small difference, but a very significant difference. Giving yourself some pleasure, just starting with 5 minutes a day, gives you a boost of energy and enthusiasm for the other activities you choose for your life. When you put yourself first, the activities you have chosen remain a joy to you, and don’t become a burden and a weight on your shoulders.
Do something for yourself each day. You can begin with taking 5 minutes for something that you enjoy. What do you enjoy? Is it reading, yoga, drawing, dancing, sitting silently with coffee, connecting to the Earth outside, writing, sewing, doing a puzzle, chatting with a friend, finding a new recipe on the internet, or learning to juggle? Choose something you enjoy and do it for 5 minutes today.
