Investing in You
When was the last time you did something for yourself? Something that would better you as a person? Maybe that's learning a new skill, starting to eat better or exercise, maybe that's learning to take a personal day to unwind, or finding encouragement through reading the Bible every day, maybe that's taking a trip somewhere you've always wanted to go or signing up for something bigger than you think you can achieve.
With so many people and things vying for our attention, it's easy for a lot of us to feel selfish by focusing on something we care about. I would argue that taking time out for you will actually make you even better for "the other"... Whoever and whatever that may be for you.
What have you put on the back burner? What is it that gets you excited to wake up in the morning? What puts a smile on your face and deep joy in your heart? What have you always wanted to do but have been too scared to try?
