Giving ourselves time to be ourselves

With so many things to do and places to be at, it can seem almost impossible to go about giving ourselves time to be ourselves. Nevertheless, how authentically present are we if we offer only a fleeting glimpse of who we are, rather than giving ourselves time to be ourselves?

It’s a cliché, yes, but life really is lived in the present moment. Unfortunately based on current scheduling, waiting for a clear agenda to start giving ourselves time to be ourselves suggests we could be waiting a long time.

So, will we do it? Knowing the value it brings there is no valid reason not to engage in giving ourselves time to be ourselves. The main obstacle stopping us might be the habit of putting ourselves second, third or even last on the list of people we listen to.

That, however, is another issue, worthy of its own post.

For now, please feel free to share your thoughts on the ideas set out here by leaving a comment below. Thanks for reading this ‘Giving ourselves time to be ourselves’ post today.
