I had my annual doctor’s checkup today and she kindly asked if I get daily exercise and take vitamins. Well, I couldn’t lie, I don’t really do either of these things consistently. As we spoke, it hit me, I spend so much time making sure my dad has his vitamins/medications, eats healthy and gets daily exerciser but for some crazy reason I think it’s ok for me to skip these things. Just as the cobbler’s children have no shoes, Warren’s daughter doesn’t take her vitamins, exercise or watch her diet. I’m sure this is a common issue facing other overextended adults. But, if we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t care for others. It’s that simple. Going forward…I will hold myself up to the same standards I have for my dad…promise.
