There have been discussions about the importance of taking care of ourselves and one of the reoccurring things we heard from our participants was that they felt a sense of guilt. Some thought it was selfish to put themselves first in this regard. You may wonder why – the simplest answer is we are nurturers by nature. We pour and pour into our loved ones without realizing how much energy it takes. When we are on fumes we push forward while burning out in silence and are disappointed if others don’t replenish what we have freely offered. Self care is not selfish. Repeat this mantra until it takes root and then pour into yourself because your wellbeing literally depends on it.
Peace, Love and Light
