It's been over a year since I have been on here and I think it is time to start writing again. I'm hoping it won't be as sporadic as it has been in the past. Although, sometimes I don't really have anything to say. But today I do!
Question: Is it okay to be selfish?
I think so! Well, if you are being selfish in the right way. Sometimes we spend so much time taking care of other people that we neglect our own well being. We become emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually drained and have nothing left to refuel our souls. Don't get me wrong. I believe it is important to be a servant, minister, a comfort, protector, or encourager, but don't forget that unless you are in an okay place its hard to get someone there.
Consider doing something special for yourself. Buy yourself a gift. Take up a new hobby, read an intriguing book, enjoy the warmth of the summer evenings alone on a nice walk, or close the door and shut off the phone and spend time with God. It may seem like there is not enough time in the day, or enough money to spend on something extra, but if you become selfish just a little bit, you will be rejuvenated and refreshed and life will seem a bit happier! :)
