The greatest gift you give to yourself and your environment is knowing you are worth self care. Taking actionable steps every day to care of you is the greatest gift to you, your family, friends and the world. You are worth it.
Life is challenging often times, time gets away, we put off for tomorrow what can be done today. Taking care of the self is typically gets put off first. Why self care is put on the back burner? Is because most people are givers, putting everyone else first, leaving the self for last. Did you ever notice when back burner syndrom happenes often enough burnout occurs frustration sets in, and as it get worse inflammation happens in the physical body and the result is knocked out, time out you are forced to stop, why? Because one day upon waking up extreme tiredness sets in, body aches, maybe you wake up with a cold or flu. Or worst you experience physical pain that could be the spine moving out of alignment causing pain so bad your stuck in bed, it could be anything that makes you stop in your tracks. At this point it is best to know nothing is happening to you but rather you, in that moment you are being called to stop and reconnect with the self.
Not loving your self is painful, not caring for the self fills the being up with tiredness, fustration, lack of clarity, no fuel and no go powers and an accumulation of toxic build up results causing Dis-ease Dis-comfort in the four body systems. The body stops allowing normal fuction and say hey time for the knock out, to slow you down think of it as the BIG RED SIGN that says STOP!!!! or the flashing light that says WARNING DANGER A HEAD. Well if you dont pay attention to the signs it's bam on your butt. Taking this a bit deeper your friend and family even those you work with feel the pain, because you act differently with out meaning to you cause them pain in mind and heart. I know i said the same thing twice, in a different way, I know for myself it 3-6-9 times befor I get it.
Self care is so important. All great relationships start with you, first. Not with your mother, father, sister, brother and friend as we have been trained to believe. There is nothing wrong with putting others first really second, first after you, making them second.
