Have you ever had just one of those days? How about a few of those weeks? I dare say that my schedule has been riddled with many manic moments. Harried. Hurried. Exhausted. That doesn’t even scratch the surface for how I have felt lately.
I have the tendency to pour out everything for everyone. I’ll go the extra mile, and expend all of my energy for others, and find myself completely spent when it is time to take care of myself. I should know better, and often intentionally make time to care just for myself. During those times when I forget self-care, I am grateful for gentle reminders.
This new mug from Family Christian arrived at just the right time, and will be used often. Just as I need to fill up my mug with my morning jolt of caffeine, I have to remind myself to fill up emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and physically. I am grateful for gentle reminders to put myself first, so that I am better equipped to help others.
If you needed a gentle reminder, take it from me: Supermom, Superexecutive, Superwife, SuperYOU cannot fly without proper fuel. Take some time today to get encouraged, strengthened, and refreshed. Stop putting off that spa date. Don’t delay going to your happy place. Go to the beach. Spend time with your friends. Make time to enjoy the simple things in life. Smile! Laugh! Hug! You are amazing, and can do amazing things. Make sure that you are amazing to yourself.
