Why do we need to take time for ourselves?

We work hard for others and put other needs before our own, decreasing our own self-worth.

We empty our own cups to replenish others.

We quiet that voice within and listen to the needs of others forgetting that we have needs too.

We feel guilty if we put ourselves first and selfish if we do, judging ourselves harshly. We are programmed this way through society.

Helping others is noble and worthy, it also drains our energy, burns us out and often goes unnoticed.

We need to replenish our own energy, be grateful for our gifts and focus on our own needs to decrease burnout so we can help others in a more gratifying way for ourselves. There are times we need to be the ones that say to ourselves, I am beautiful, I am smart, I am needed, I am loved, and I am enough. We need to say it to ourselves and feel it before we can believe it.

This dance has allowed me to focus on myself and connect my mind with my heart, body, and spirit. I felt pleasure from within. The dance has allowed me to listen to my own needs so I can express my soul from within, without judgement and without guilt.

The dance has increased my self-awareness, with finding my strengths and weaknesses thus increasing my self-acceptance and living in kindness to myself.

Therefore, I take time for me; belly dance has been my me time, increasing my sense of wellness and self-esteem and creating a positive feeling of self-expression, my medicine to focus on me, connecting movement with the music in time and space.

We are all important and we all deserve to treat ourselves and to connect with in.
