I USED to think being BUSY was a badge of honor to be proud of. I found out, it gave me an easy excuse to be not be my best. Become who you were created to be.
I've heard from a few leaders say: "I have to do this for church, so I had to skip breakfast or drove through to grab food." "I had to do this, so I am skipping my water and having just coffee." "I am on this diet, but I'm skipping it today, because I am running behind." Be the person you want your kids to be. You cannot serve others, if you cannot take care of yourself. You are worth it.
Self care also means SAYING no! If you doing something for someone else, costs you and will hurt you physically, emotionally, financially, or spiritually, say no! It is OK!
If you can't self care or haven't been and don't know how...please reach out or comment.
There are many friends on Facebook that have been where you are or know someone who has and who love to serve others.
