I literally forgot to eat lunch today. As in I didn’t even think about it. At about 5 o’clock I wondered why I was shaky. Did I have lunch? Um, no.
I faithfully promised Keck I’d take a walk this morning while it was still cool. Then, got so distracted that I didn’t.
I wasn’t even overwhelmed today.
The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.Matthew 22:39 net
It makes me wonder: What does that even mean? Surely, I wouldn’t treat my neighbor so badly? I wouldn’t forget to feed someone I knew needed to eat. I wouldn’t forget to encourage someone to go for a walk for their own good.
Why is it so hard for me to take care of myself and do the things I know that need to be done for my own good? Wouldn’t I be better able to love my neighbor if I wasn’t hangry? If I put some oxygen on myself first wouldn’t I be better able to put it on another person?
I think it’s a matter of my priorities. I put myself last. Not a good plan if I want to feel good and be healthy.
How do you love yourself? Prioritize your needs? I would definitely be open to a few suggetions. ❤
