“Just living isn’t enough,” said the butterfly, “One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.” – Hans Christian Anderson
Creating balance in my life is a priority. I give out a lot to others in my work and I have learned many times over, if I am out of balance, so is the rest of my life.
Making myself a priority is essential, if I am to create balance within. When I do not create boundaries in my life, I become fatigued, irritated and resentful. These are always my signs to ‘stop’, ‘slow down’ and take time to nurture my body and energy.
Taking time to listen to what I need, creates space for me to let go and rejuvenate. What is your body saying to you today?
I grow empty,
giving and giving.
I will not allow guilt to dissolve my boundaries.
Safe from expectations
I grow roots.
Wait for my fruits, friend.
Wait for my fullness.
