Prioritizing Your Needs With Others Needs

Last week we talked about the difficulties of self-care; this week I would like to offer sone strategies to doing just that. Remember, if you ignore your own self care needs, you may become drained, angry and resentful. When your physical and emotional “pitcher” is empty, you cannot pour love and help on anyone else. […]

Self Care Is Not Selfish!

Do you struggle with balancing other things (food, time, resources, other people’s needs) with meeting your own needs? Do you feel like if you take care of all of them first, then you can go and take care of yourself? Or maybe they will take care of you? And then there is never enough time […]

We’re Almost There!

As you read this, it should be the first of December. That means there are thirty-one days till the beginning of the new year. For me this is a special, precious and sacred time. I cut out as many of my normal work activities as possible and spend the time doing other things, which I […]

Thanksgiving Week Has Arrived!

There are so many blessings in our lives that sometimes we forget to count them! We tend to stay focused on the things that are different from every other year, impossible to have, require extra work and planning, and being aware of COVID hanging over our heads! I want to try in this blog to […]

This will not be a Thanksgiving like any other so our preparations must be a lot different from other years. Our anxieties, worries, concerns, and maybe disappointments need to be handled with love and […]
