15 minutes

The daily prompt says you have 15 minutes to address the whole world live (on television or radio — choose your format). What would you say?

Ummmmmmmmmm………what to say???  Well I’ll tell you this much for nothing, it would be on radio and not on TV, I mean I’m not designed to be on TV…I’m not a stick-figure, so no TV for me.

Anyway…what could I say that would be important enough for the whole world to hear???  That’s a difficult concept.  There are very few people that get to address the whole world live, people such as Barack Obama and the Pope, events such as Prince William and Catherine’s wedding…what could little old me, teacher in Country Town say that would be worthy for a world wide audience???

Maybe that it’s time to focus on what is important in life, focus on the person that is most important to us, focus on ourselves for a while, not in a selfish way, but in a way that keeps up satisfied, in a way that keeps us hungry to learn more, to do more, to achieve more, in a way that nurtures us and a way that loves us and enables us to go on when times are tough.  To find time for ourselves, to find time to love ourselves, to relax and rejuvenate ourselves.

Yes it is important to focus on others, but it just as important to love and focus on ourselves for a while each and every day.

    That is a great message, it all starts from within – caring and respecting for oneself builds the foundation for others to emulate. Well done! 😀
