“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.

This is a good reminder. I can feel guilty/selfish putting my needs before others. It is essential to my health to do so at times!
Yes true for us all Eliza, but my family, friends and clients, can be patient while I become full again 🌈💕

Listening to your body and paying attention to it’s needs is utterly important.
Without do so, it’s like trying to drive a car that does not have an engine.
