No time for self care

09.20.2006

I really had lots of work to do and I was going to be gone to a class at night. Besides I was kind of stuffy with allergies. Why in the world was I trying to talk myself out of my massage?

I came to my senses right before I picked up the phone. I work with clients to get them to fit in self care and I was going to blow it off.

I actually really needed that massage. My massage therapist couldn’t believe how tight my shoulders were. I had a 3 day migraine due to a barometer change in the weather and it tightened my neck and shoulders so much she could barely massage. She tried hot stones therapy (at know extra charge 🙂 to loosen me up. When I left I couldn’t believe how much better I felt.

I didn’t get much more work done yesterday, but today I was a whirlwind of energy. I gotĂ‚Â tons ofĂ‚Â work done. I even did an hour of exercise this morning after only doing light exercise allĂ‚Â week.

And all it took was talking myself out of cancelling a 1/2 hour massage.

    I am an avid Anne of Green Gables fan. Treat yourself to renting the videos. My dh and I took an rv trip to Prince Edward Island about 10 years ago. It is the land of Anne.

    Hi Margaret,

    Thanks for writing. Visiting Prince Edward Island is definitely on my list of places I want to travel. I’ve watched all the movies and read all the Anne series. Now I am reading the other ones. You must have had a wonderful trip!
