Only you!

This is one of the best and hardest days of my life; I am so happy that I take care of myself because when someone I love needs me I can be there to help them.

This is the text I saw first thing this morning and it made me feel so loved and so proud all at the same time.  I take care of myself so I can do for my sons, so I can help my family. Not long after I read that text, I got a call telling me my HLP (husband like person) had loss his grandmother to cancer.  That cut me to the core.  But I’m stronger now that I think and do differently; now that I treat myself better,  I can offer my support and strength to him and his family in their time of loss.Screenshot_20180511-222131

I didn’t always take care of myself and there was a time that guilt made self love a thing of nonexistence to me.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking care of yourself, with putting yourself first sometimes.   How can you offer your best self to others if you are not your best self.  Remember you are the only you you get,  take very good care of YOU!!!!

  1. Those are the best gifts a mother could ask for. After I read my baby’s hashtag I burst into tears. I know one day she WILL make me proud. Then today even though the flowers were dried up she still managed to find the sweetest card & flowers.

  4. I love this message of self-care and how it benefits you so you can help others. I’m still working on giving myself enough time to recharge in between projects. Very encouraging.
