I spent the last several days with my youngest son, daughter-in-law and two small children. What a delight! When I visit them, I share all the hugs I can and read and play with my two grandchildren; and I enjoy time, conversations and activities with my son and daughter-in-law. I am going home nourished and fed. My tank is full to overflowing right now.
What nourishes you? What activities give you energy and warm your heart? Which people in your life fill your tank?
It's important that you know what feeds you—and make sure you get plenty of time for those people and things that do. Self-care is essential in lives that are busy and stressful, and that pretty much includes everyone these days!
Don't try to run on an empty tank. It doesn't work very well. You can't operate that way any more than your car can. So make a list of what feeds you and be sure you get your minimum daily requirement!
