Lend yourself to others, but give yourself to yourself.

~ Michel de Montaigne

Self-care is elusive.

You give, give, and give some more and come to the end of the day only to realize that all the time and energy you hoped to give yourself is gone. We lend money only when we have extra to spare. Do the same with your energy and time.

If you forget yourself in the giving it won’t be long before you have less to give, and that benefits no one in the long run. Least of all YOU. Give yourself time to exercise, give yourself a lunch break for Pete’s sake. Give yourself down-time in the midst of holiday hustle, give yourself moments of pause, or a nap, or a day off of house work. For at least a small part of every day, give yourself to yourself in a meaningful, nurturing way. Go YOU!
