Promise to yourself

I don’t pretend to have all the answers; but I know what I feel.

I know so many people who are like me: who struggle to find time out for themselves, who struggle to stop the racing mind when they are trying to fall asleep, who sit at work daydreaming of all the things that make them happy that they wish they were doing instead of what they are doing at that moment in time.
Last night I taught a class, and I asked the class to come out of meditation and just sit quietly for another minute to think about something nice they could do for themselves in the week ahead, and to commit to doing it.

Last night I felt immensely sad when a few people told me after the class, they struggled to think of something they could do just for them as they simply didn’t have the time.

I invite you all to please do the same, not just this week, but each week following this. Make a promise to yourself. Find something that is for you, and you alone. Something to make you happy and feel whole.

It is not selfish – it is a necessity!

About Lou Schwarz

I am a traveller at heart.I dream about travel- of exploring the world and meeting new people. When I am not dreaming or travelling; I work in communications and media and I also teach body balance group fitness classes. I live my life trying to motivate and inspire people through fitness, doing one thing a week that scares me, and unleashing my creativity as frequently as I can. When I am not getting my zen on through teaching I am constantly attract ridiculous things and people into my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope you enjoy my two blogs -or at least one of them :)
