Care Well ~
Self-care is so often misunderstood and thought of as being selfish. When it actually couldn't be more opposite! In fact, it's selfish not to practice self-care. This month is all about learning to care for yourself well by implementing more self-care.
"Self-care is never a selfish act—it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.” - Parker Palmer
I say it all the time and I'll say it again (and again and again), 'You can't give what you don't have.'
When you don't make an effort to fill your own well first, you're only capable of giving bits and pieces of yourself to those in your life. This is a fact. The care you give to yourself overflows to those around you.
Self-care is not a luxury, it's a necessity.
And here's an added bonus for you.....All month long, I'll be adding extra tips exclusive to Your Live Well Journey Insiders, our closed Facebook group for women who are on the journey to living well.
