"You are important enough to ask and you are blessed enough to receive back."~ Wayne Dyer
Who in your life could be more important than you? I have asked people who the most important person in their life is, and I have received many answers like their spouse, their children, their family…few of us value ourselves enough to believe that we are the most important person in our lives, and that is really sad.
We must take care of ourselves first. We must be foremost in our own mind because we will be of no use to anyone who might need our help if we don’t look after ourselves first.
You cannot be like anyone else, so you might as well be like you. And you might as well like yourself and treat yourself like you are the most important person in your life. You only have control of your own life, your own actions, and your own thoughts. Nobody else can control them…unless you let them…and you cannot control anyone else.
You have the power to live your life as you choose. You have the responsibility to do the part you came into this physical world to do. You, and only you, are capable of treating yourself to the rich and fulfilling life experience you came here to live.
You may tell me that others in your life are more important than yourself…to you…but I tell you that you are not thinking straight. Why are they more important? Because you care for them? Because you wish to make them happy? If this is what you are thinking, ask yourself “why?” If you are honest with yourself you will come up with the only answer that is possible…it is because it will make you feel better if they are happy. And so, it really is about you after all!
Don’t feel badly about this. It is exactly as it should be. You are here to live your life…not somebody else’s life. You are here to experience your own fulfillment, in whatever form that takes. You are here for you, and that should make you feel good. This gives your life true purpose.
As you pursue your purpose in life, you will do it best by treating yourself like you are the most important person in your life…because you are!
Looking out for you, by some of the standards that our society has set for us, is called selfish. It is frowned upon…yet, if you don’t look out for you, then you won’t be around to help anyone else. It is not being selfish, it is being self-full, and it is your natural state.
Treat yourself well. Stop beating up on yourself for making “mistakes.” The quotes are to emphasize that there really are no mistakes. There are only different perspectives, from which some things feel like mistakes. Everything happens in your life for a reason. Although you have free will, the Universe is constantly arranging and rearranging the circumstances, people, and events that will allow you to follow your life the way you planned it. You are right where you intended to be…congratulations…treat yourself to a celebration!
