Something struck me as I read this quote the other day…Self care is something you have to claim. It is important to take some time for yourself, even it is a few minutes to take a few deep breaths. Claim that time. This is a practice that I know I need to work on. How about you?
Our days can get a little crazy with ‘life’.. But, like a car, if your gas tank is empty, your engine will not run. Like most moms out there, I am always putting the needs of others before mine because that is what we do. I know that if my kids or husband need me, that comes first in my world. That does come with me being put last on the list. When we start to feel run down and tired, that is when we know it is time to re-fill the tank.
