Have you checked in with yourself?

I feel like I was having premonitional feelings (I don’t know if that’s a word, but it is the best way I can describe it). I’ve been thinking about how I’ve been feeling.  I thought about a few of my recent posts.  I’ve had a strong desire to be home more, run less; take a real vacation with my boys; free my calendar of obligations that are not priorities to me.  Somehow, I sensed a change was coming.

I think it is so important to check in with ourselves.  Pay attention to those “random” thoughts.  Don’t live on auto-pilot.  Life changes directions.  What was right before might not be right now.

Be less busy.  Take care of yourself.  Take a walk by yourself … and listen to your thoughts.  Make the appointments you’ve been putting off.  A clean bill of health is a great feeling.  Advice on areas to improve should be seriously considered.  Early diagnosis is preferred to a late diagnosis. 

Check your calendar for obligations that could be swapped out for priorities.

  1. So timely. I’ve been doing the same thing lately. My focus has been listening to my body. It’s been saying to take care of it better. It’s also said enjoy life more. Hence the motorcycle ride recently and spending time outside really looking at the beauty around me.
