Topic of the Week

Are you sneaky or Selfish?

Today is a lazy day.

I don’t want to do a damn thing.

There’s laundry to be done, emails to answer, house projects calling my name.

So many things begging for my attention.

But they won’t get it.

Because today I’m being Selfish.

With a capital “S.”

I’m keeping my attention for me.

For years I thought the way to get the attention I needed was to give it to everyone and everything else first.

Maybe then I’d get some back.

But what you get back is never enough when you keep ignoring yourself.

Not to mention the fact that it’s sneaky to try and get by giving.

And I was masterful at being sneaky.

But not anymore.

Now I’m Selfish.

And it works so much better for everyone.

Are you sneaky or Selfish?
