Self care isn’t selfish

Self care isn’t a fad, it’s a necessary habit.
It’s a mindset that will help you to do more not just for yourself, but for others too.
Often self care is thought is as a selfish attitude.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
Looking after yourself does not make you a selfish person.
It makes you a smart person.
Because unless you look after yourself, you can’t look after others, not for long anyway.
Take care of yourself first.
Your wellbeing is important.

What is the point of life?

What is the point of life?
Self awareness and fulfillment?
Taking care of ourselves?
But they can’t be the point of life, and I will elaborate why below.
Self care, self love, self awareness, etc are all important because at the end of the day if you don’t take care of yourself you will be of no good to anyone.
But that can’t be, and is not, the end goal. Because if all we did was take care of ourselves, made ourselves happy and then died when our time was up – it would be a very meaningless existence.
For everyone else, it would be as if the person never existed.
No, I believe our existence far precedes our own needs and wants.
Our existence is about making a difference.
A life spent in pursuit of only one’s own happiness doesn’t lead to a life of meaning, a life spent in the pursuit of making a difference does.
Steve Jobs’ quote about making a dent in the universe is one of my favourite quotes.
We are all here to make a dent in the universe.
Some will make bigger dents than others, and that’s ok.
The point isn’t about who makes a bigger dent, but rather about making a dent, a difference.
How we do that is up to us.
Making a difference is what makes humans such an incredible race.
It is what makes the world such a great place.
It is what makes life worthwhile, and worth living.
Make your dent in the universe.
