3 in 30: November {week 2}

remember why you held on for so long in the first place."

3in30 I'm In!!Consistently get back to the Y in the mornings...Made it to the Y every day last week!
Begin making/shopping for Christmas presents...More progress made here with using my hours alone on Friday when the boys went to their Nana & Pawpaw's house to start purchasing some of their presents.  I was also able to begin calendars and photo books for my extended family.
Use gift of encouragement...Little things sometimes mean the most.  Made a friend's day when she received the flowers I sent her "just because".  Emails, notes, and phone calls all were taken time for this week, too.

It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
