Finding the Balance Between Selfish and Selfless.

Ecclesiastes 3:12–13 So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.  

I've never been the best at taking time away. When I say not the best ... I mean like not good. I have issues unplugging truly (I mean I'm blogging on vacation right now... Whoops #leadfromthefront) Not because the lack of trust at all. I have the best team in the world. 

I have always related spending time with myself selfish. Mostly just because I am not uber selfish person also ... It's never been natural to be like that. I feel such guilt taking a break when people need me. I know that sounds egotistical to some but it's true. 

In this profession there's always something to do to help another person to be the better version of themself, and that's a hard thing to say NO to! Like really hard! Being a contributing factor into the changing of someone's life is such a gift. And it's super hard to unplug and essentially ignore them and worry about myself. Sounds even worse now that I type it out. Which explains a lot of the why in "why" I feel like this.  

Bottom line is .... I can't enjoy life and allow for the best use my gifts if I don't allow myself to take just as much care as myself as I do everyone else. And not just a few times a year. This should happen regularly. 
Time to step up and #dome :-)
