Choose Yourself first

A bit of personal reflection that I have learned this month about myself and I believe can also apply to each of you.

Earlier this month one of my dearest friends passed away from health issues related to long-term diabetes.

For me it was a big wake up call about NOT living life to the fullest. Truthfully I’ve been playing small for the most part over the last few years. A negative habit that grew exponentially from a long-term relationship.

I’m very grateful for what I have, but honestly I’ve not been living life to the fullest. It was part of the reason I chose to move back to Memphis

From the outside you may think I have the world but that’s so far from the truth. And while I preach a lot about gratitude I’ve somehow failed to appreciate myself.

Growing up on a small farm without siblings my own age taught me a lot about being alone and self-motivation. However, these past few years I have realized that I’ve put others way before myself and I have settled into a small space in life. Yes part of that related to COVID and the world shutting down.

So my message to all of you is this…

If you don’t choose yourself first and foremost then there will be nothing left to give to others.

>>Not in business.<<

>>Not professionally.<<

>>Not in personal relationships and definitely not in life.<<

Choose yourself first!
