We all have dreams we wish to accomplish. Perhaps it is to be the best parent in the world, or to achieve success in our careers or even to save lives. But we cannot reach these goals unless we take care of ourselves first.
We need to nourish our bodies, raise our spirits and manage our stresses if we are to achieve success in our endeavours. If you are working on a large goal such as finishing school or raising a child, remember every day to perform some act of kindness for yourself. It may be to move your body in a fitness class or quiet your mind with meditation or to try a new healthy meal. We cannot fuel our external fires if we leave our personal fires to burn out.
Treat yourself with gentleness.
