How well do you know yourself?

I'm always talking about the Speed of Life in this blog. One of the reasons for the focus is simply because it's true. The speed that we all keep in life makes us very active.

We're working hard to earn a living, take care of responsibilities and various other activities. These things steer our entire week and leave us out of breath by the time the weekend comes.

It's often a habit to anticipate the needs of our families as we maintain our busy schedules. Do we anticipate our own needs as easily? I'm not entire sure that most of us even notice a need (personal) until it's nearly extreme.

Time alone, meditation and relaxation are important. These help us to shut own the world and to just listen. There are physical and emotional needs that each of us has. It's unfair to expect a spouse or loved one to meet these needs when we can't pinpoint them ourselves.

The more that you know about yourself, the more wisdom you gain. We have to target and schedule regular time for ourselves.

Wouldn't it be great to get to know yourself better?
