Self-Centered, Yes. Why Not?

I am in the center of my world. I am famous, notable, lovable, adorable and so much more. If I do not take care of myself first then how can I take care of others. Love and charity need to begin at home; and, home starts with me. 

Are you self-centered? No? Why not? How can you serve others if you are tired, drained, exhausted, hungry and sleepy? By taking care of yourself first, you will have the stamina to serve others as the best person you can be.

There is no need to apologize to nourish your body, exercise, sleep and pamper yourself now and then to recharge your mind, body and soul.  Believe it or not, in delighting yourself, you WILL delight others. You will be in a better mood and in a better place mentally and spiritually.

Put yourself in the shoes of others, would you rather be with a tired spouse, parent or other caregiver or someone who is robust, energetic and totally engaged in you? To be the best I can be for others I am proud to be self-centered! By taking care of me first, I can better take care of others. Yes! I am self-centered.
