It's easy to be there for a friend, family member or a stranger in need. Does the light you share with others find its' way back to you? Or does your light sustain you?
I bring this up because I'm pretty sure my Doc will yell at me tomorrow during my check up! Lol! 😂 My light is happy to help others and I get joy from it, but it doesn't always shine brightly back to me by my loved ones or even for myself. Sometimes friends & family won't look after you as much as you look after them, & that's ok.
You are needed.
The Problem: Likely the mom in me that takes care of others before myself. I promise I understand the importance of caring for yourself and watching after your health, but I also empathize with those that sometimes take the back seat. It's exhausting looking after others & being a mom is one of the toughest jobs.
I have learned not to beat myself up about it though. You can fret about weight, bad habits, tasks undone, & health all day - but it won't do any good. The power to manage all of those stresses lies within you. At the end of the day it's a choice to improve your quality of life and when you're ready you must have faith that you will. Imagine how many you'll help when you're 100% looking after & loving yourself!
