“Self-Care is not selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” -Eleanor Brown
Do the demands of everyday life keep you so busy that your own health and well-being end up last on your ‘to do’ list? Many of us began the New Year striving to make positive changes in our lives. We live in a fast paced world. Families today are on the go with the demands of work, school, extracurricular activities, caring for aging parents and grandparents, and the list goes on and on. We are hyper focused on time, on deadlines, and on meeting the needs of others and those we love. It is not selfish to focus on our own needs. It is important. If you do not take care of yourself, how can you take care of others?
How well equipped will you be physically, emotionally, or spiritually to meet the challenges in life?” We all come from different places. No two lives are the same. Our situations and circumstances are all different. Wherever you are in this journey called ‘life’, take time to believe in yourself, have faith in your abilities, and do not be afraid to make changes in your life according to ‘your’ circumstances.
Take time to be still and enjoy your journey with all of the ups and downs, learning from each new experience. Do not be afraid or ashamed to seek help when needed. Seek advice and solutions from family or friends, professionally, or through a church. There are many avenues available for those needing an outside source of help.
Make your own health a priority. In doing so, you will be better capable of fulfilling those everyday challenges. As February rolls around, remember, while you are loving on others, to love yourself. Take some “me time”. Take time to relax, live in each moment, and count your blessings! You deserve it!
“Love yourself enough to take care of your health of mind, body, and soul as a top priority, then you’ll be fit to face anything.”-Jay Woodman.
