Neglecting Me

(Courtesy of Microsoft)

We all get caught up the daily happenings of our lives.  We all wear different hats and try to juggle many things. While doing this you may stop and realize hey I'm neglecting me!  You keep putting of doctor's appointments, you eat more fast food because you're on the go or don't have time to make something that may be a little better for you.  Or you get a rut where you don't care and get kind of lazy.  Well for me it's a mix of all of the above.  I've put of making various doctor's appointment when my azz knows that something is wrong or that I need to go for routine check ups.  I let other people transfer their crap to me and then I get all frustrated and stressed out.  This is more so work related stuff  but there's some family stuff thrown in there which is touchy (and a whoooole 'nother post all together).  I had been doing good with working out and trying to eat a little better. Some things here and there have thrown me off.  Well good people I need to stop neglecting me!  If I do then I won't be here long.

One of my favorite stand-up comedy movies is Martin Lawrence's Runteldat.  At the beginning and end he says ride the m'fer until the wheels fall off.  He's taking about life.  You only get one shot at it.   Yes you will encounter your trials and tribulations but in all things there's a lesson to be learned.  Take it and run with it.  Don't get caught up in the dumb stuff.  I have to remind myself of this allllll the time!  You have to learn to take the good with the bad.  That's life.  Of course we want everything to sunshine and roses.  I guess it can be depending on your outlook and how you handle the various seasons of your life. *ques Dixie Chicks' version of Landslide* LOL!

On Facebook one of my friends posted that she had a recent health scare and needed to rethink on some things and start taking better care of herself  I saw another friend comment that she takes off two days out of the month for "mental health" days.  Lord knows we all need days like those.  I can honestly say since I've been working I've never taken a real vacation .  I take days off here and there.  Usually it's to do things that I don't have time to do over the weekend.  Sad I know.  Again I need to do better and stop neglecting me.  I've make some doctor's appointment's that I've been putting off.  I've gotten back to working out this week, I made a small grocery store run, going to continue with purging and organizing things.  So slowly but surely I'm going to do better taking care of me.  If I don't do it then who will?

Until next time folks...

  1. I can definitely relate! I JUST saw a doctor about a few issues 2 of which I've been actively ignoring for about a year.

    We've gotta start doing better!

  2. Ma'am!

    Yes we do! *sharp head nod*
