Do you have a lot going on? Are you trying to juggle too much?
Sometimes we can find our lives are so busy that all we do is put out fires. It may feel like we are spinning plates, running chaotically around trying to keep any from hitting the floor. We fall into bed at night and realize we have done nothing for ourselves all day. We have taken care of everything and everyone, except us.
When we do not take care of ourselves, we do not have a lot to give others. Especially long term. It is not selfish to take loving care of ourselves – that gives us more loving energy to take care of others. It is helpful and important to take great care of ourselves.
When we take care of ourselves, we have more to give others. We can choose to take a break from all the juggling and give ourselves some care every day.
