As some of you may know, I'm presently working on a big project for the 2010 Olympics and this morning I put one of our guest artists on a plane home and this afternoon I'll pick another one up. In between these runs to the airport I have two meetings and what feels like 4,234 emails to read/answer.
Oh yeah, and I'm going for a massage.
Admittedly, I'm wondering if this is the best idea. Do I really have the time? I could be attacking my "to-do" list! I could be making calls and sending messages! I could be... lying on a table with someone's hands rubbing my naked body.
No-brainer? You'd think so. But a surprisingly tough choice for the recovering workaholic.
It's taken me a long time to learn how to put self-care at the top of my list. But I need a break, I need some healing touch and you know what? I deserve these things. We all do.
So despite the fact that time is precious right now and there are many details to be taken care of, at 12:45 I am going to get my physical, emotional and spiritual needs taken care of. Massage table, here I come.
Inspiring Message of the Day: Even in the busiest of times there is time to take care of ourselves. No matter how much I have on my plate I can still devote time to self-care. I'm worth it!
