The Selfish Gift

by Paul Castain on June 10, 2011

I was putting myself through a bit of unnecessary grief last weekend!

I was actually debating whether or not to take a camping trip . . . I was planning to take on Monday!

Crazy . . . huh?

The truth of the matter is that I’m knee deep in a business start up and could give you a hundred reasons why the timing for a camping trip sucked.

And then it hit me . . . when is the timing ever good to give ourselves a gift?

There are always things to do, new clients to please . . . busy, busy busy!

But here’s the funny part . . .

Ask me to give something to someone else . . . I’m there!

A client or a prospect needs something . . . Uncle Paul has you covered dude!

So I took a look at my schedule, moved the things that could be moved and the things that couldn’t . . . well I decided to take them camping with me!

For 2 ½ days I thought about my life . . . where I’ve been, where I plan to go and of course, where I am today.

In short, I simply slowed down long enough to get reacquainted with Me!

And then it hit me . . .

Sometimes we need to do what they instruct us to do in the event of an emergency on a plane . . .

Make sure we get our own oxygen mask on before helping someone else get their’s on.

And then I looked over my shoulder to the scene in the picture below and forgot what the hell I was thinking about :)

So that was my gift to me . . . and that makes me curious . . .

What gift are you willing to give yourself?
