We don’t really believe it’s okay to take time for ourselves.

We want to believe it. We want to invest in ourselves. We want to let our individual heart soar.

But down deep there seems to be something selfish about it.


Nothing could be further from the truth.

Still, it’s just so difficult to invest in our own individual piggy banks.

However, the world becomes a better place when each of us dedicates ourselves to our own unique gifts, purpose, and vision. 

And as the first quote below indicates, it will only enhance our entire world.
