I'm grateful to be providing loving care for myself today. I'm grateful to ask for help when I can not provide the care I need for myself. We often provide for others, especially those we love at any cost. Parents, in particular, know this well. The truth is that if we do not care for ourselves at the same time, there will be a time when we are no longer able to give. We give to others, not from our own cup, but from our cup being full and spilling over into theirs. We must fill our cup first. This can be hard to remember as the life, children, and other life needs pull us in all directions. Our hearts are big and our focus is on those in need. We need that same loving care. Today I am grateful to take some time to get the care I need. I am grateful for those who help provide that for me so that I may refill my cup and pass that love on to others in the overflow. I am grateful to know that my beauty shines from within and to shine my light brightly I need to nurture it. How do you nurture yourself? Do you recognize the signs when your cup is running low? Who can you ask for help in providing that loving care? Today, give yourself the love you need. You are so worth it!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
