What makes you happy? What gives you energy? What inspires you to self-fulfill? And why are we so good at oppressing our wish-list, our happy-list, our-self? I don’t do that. I don’t oppress my happy list. I am ok to be called selfish, if selfish means I dedicate time for something that makes me happy, that gives me energy, and inspires me. Running.
It is so simple. I found my me-time in running. And without my me-time the other times don’t work. If I am not happy, if I don’t have energy, if I am not inspired how can I teach my kids to be happy to find energy, to get inspired. Call me selfish.

Put on your mask first.
