I'm grateful to take time for myself today and grateful for those around me that understand that need. I'm grateful to take care of myself because I know that when I take time for me, I have more to give to others later. It's so easy, especially at the holidays, to get caught up in all that is going on around us but it is important to be sure we are taking time for ourselves as well. We help fill others' cups by what runneth over from our own, not by dumping our own into others'. The more I love and care for myself, the better I can love and care for those around me. I'm grateful to be reminded of that as I was feeling a bit run down last night. I'm grateful for an amazing boyfriend and family that understands and respects that need. And I'm grateful to start today fresh and rejuvenated. How will you take time to care for yourself today? How will you then share that renewed spirit with others?
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
