Dear Perfectly Imperfect Girl,
It’s hard to remember that we can’t be much good to anyone at all if we don’t take care of ourselves.
Even though there may be people all around us who need help, who need assistance, who need advice, who need a hug, who need a friend, who need a clean towel, who need a sandwich…..we’ve all got to have the energy to do these things each day, and we cannot expect our bodies to carry us forward without recharging. We cannot expect our mind to have fresh ideas and our hearts to have patience. We have to refill ourselves.
Just like we are told on an airplane before a flight…before reaching out to help another in an emergency, we must have our own oxygen masks on.
It is not taking anything away from anyone else when we take some time each day to catch our breath, recharge, restore and remember.
Take time to take care….you are so important. You are loved.
