WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WASN’T SELFISH?
How to Create A Life You Love

Be nice. Be kind. Give to others. Save the world. Don’t be selfish.
In Julia Cameron’s bestseller The Artist’s Way (my personal pandemic highlight), she shares, “Afraid to appear selfish, we lose our self. Many people, caught in the virtue trap, do not appear to be self-destructive to the casual eye. Bent on being good husbands, fathers, mothers, wives, teachers, whatevers, they have constructed a false self that looks good to the world and meets with a lot of worldly approval. We refuse to ask ourselves, ‘What are my needs? What would I do if it weren’t too selfish?’”
What would you do if it wasn’t “selfish”? Carve out time to do those things that nourish your true self. The world will thank you for it.
