One hour a day, I treat myself
I treat myself to a cup of coffee
In a sunny coffee shop (when the sun it out)
I treat myself to
Reading what I want
Writing what I want
I treat myself because
The rest of day
I think of my family and their needs
I think of my students and their needs
I take care of my responsibilities and my to-do list
And because I treat myself one hour a day
I’m a happier person the rest of the day!
Being selfless is good I’m sure
And I am selfless some of the day
But I need my hour that’s for me
In order to function optimally!
Giving and being there for others
Is a noble thing
But so is taking care of my sanity!
