Invest in yourself.

Investing in the future is something we all know we should do. We have retirement plans and maintain our homes and vehicles. Saving for our children’s educations is important to us. With the goal of building a better tomorrow, we contribute our time, energy, and resources.

No matter what happens in our lives, if we lose or change jobs, when our kids grow up, if our romantic partner leaves or passes away, there will always be one contstant—us. We are always present every moment of our lives.

And yet, we often don’t think about investing in ourselves. We may not prioritize our health and well-being. Healthy diet, sufficient exercise, a spiritual or contemplative practice, and self-affirming lifestyles for ourselves may not be high on our list of must-haves. But if we want to have a happy, healthy, and prosperous future, we will need to invest in ourselves now and ongoing.

Today’s message reminds me to build myself up regularly with good self-care. I am the one person who can always be there for me, and am worthy of my time, focus, and investment.

Please reflect and share. Do you invest in yourself regularly?
