With all the chaos going on around and within you, it's time to take a break. If you stretch yourself thin, you will have nothing left to give to others. It is important to remember this, as your purpose is to help, guide, support and care for others. In order to heal and settle any excess energy within you, you must retreat and spend time alone.
Those trash bags waiting to get thrown out can wait one more day. Those dishes that need to get cleaned can wait while you recharge and heal. Those people who ask of your attention or guidance today, can wait a few moments longer while you take care of yourself. Don't run yourself ragged. It is okay to put your self-care first today. When you need it, retreat to heal. You will be better for it.
