Take Care of Yourself

Our friend Jim sent this today:  “‘You have a solemn obligation to take care of yourself because you never know when the world will need you.’ –Rabbi Hillel.”

And I would add that if we don’t take care of ourselves then everything our mothers and fathers and heaven and God and the universe did in getting us here in the first place and loving us and educating us and putting up with us and seeing the best in us and investing in us and giving us a kick in the pants when we needed it is wasted.  And all the entertainments they made to delight us and help us over the rough spots, sunsets and sparkling days and deer and raccoons, lemon pies, and homemade biscuits, are wasted. So I say we’d better take care of ourselves. And I would add that with all the problems remaining to be solved, there is no doubt the world needs us.

    Hi Margaret!

    I just read your Oct. 3rd posting about Take Care of Yourself!

    I love your approach to thinking and to life!

    You are totally right!

    And your writing got me so inspired! Yes, I can do this, I’m thinking! I can be better at taking care of myself like you suggest! (It’s so much easier for me to take care of others!)

    I absolutely enjoyed your list of life’s love-of -things-to-do, ranging from sunsets to biscuits!

    Thanks for the reminder, Margaret!

    Keep up the good work!
