Selfish or Happy?

Today's Abraham-Hicks daily quote really struck home, but it got me thinking too:

When you find vibrational alignment with You, you personally thrive. You feel good; you look good; you have stamina; you have energy; you have balance; you have clarity; you have wit; you have abundance of all things that you consider to be good. You thrive in all ways when you come into Energy Balance with YouVibrational Relativity - that's what it's all about.

---Abraham

I completely agree with this; when you are the best version of yourself you thrive, everything feels good, and you're genuinely happy but, when does this become selfish? If I'm doing everything that makes ME happy and, in turn, I may only care about how I think and feel, does that make me selfish? Is there a fine line between being happy and being selfish?

I turn 30 in two weeks and I feel I have been really focused on ME. I am working out to get MY body in shape, I have been feeling like I'M having a 'mid-life' crisis questioning what I've done up until my 30th year of life, and I definitely feel as though I HAVE been a little selfish lately. Although I'm still the first person to be there for my friends and I feel I focus on my growing and immediate family like a good wife, mother & daughter should, I've been realizing that focusing on ME is making ME happy. I've found new and exciting things that make ME happy and the first thought that comes into my head are that I'M being selfish.

If I were to follow the guidance of this quote, I think I would realize that what makes ME happy actually makes everyone else happy too. When you feel good, have stamina, energy, balance and clarity, those people and things in your life do too. So I guess being a little bit selfish actually might help others... Just watch the fine line of selfishness and self-obsession: the world can only handle one Kim Kardashian.
