Take care of you; it’s the most loving thing you can do for yourself.
Despite your best efforts to always be the generous, caring, kind hearted, help everyone else out type of person.
It’s easy to become bitter after life continuously throws you lemons.
It’s much harder to be the bigger person in an argument, especially when it’s a clear matter of right versus wrong.
It’s easier to give in to the desires of the flesh even though you know it’s not truly worth the time and effort but sometimes the lure of instant gratification seems to look so much more tantalizing than years of a strict commitment and steadfast resolve.
But peace of mind and the ability to sleep with a clear conscience is priceless.
Energy is transferable and you have to watch the company you keep and the thoughts you keep as well.
Your thoughts have the ability to drive your actions, even subconsciously.
That’s why it’s vital to spend time in reflective thought and meditation.
To help ground and recenter yourself when life attempts to knock you off your axis
You have to find your center, your grounding force that keeps you tethered on the path towards success and fulfillment.
But more importantly tethered to the path towards happiness, inner peace and joy.
Far too often, we allow the actions or inaction of others to alter our emotions.
Good people get tired of not having their efforts reciprocated, but we can’t allow outside forces to change our inside core.
We have to take time for self-care, to recharge and replenish.
Ultimately, you are responsible for your own happiness and for protecting your peace of mind.
Take the time to show yourself loving care, practice daily affirming words or phrases.
Become comfortable saying no to people and situations that are a threat to your energy and or your happiness or peace of mind and do not allow guilt to creep in.
Self-preservation is a necessary part in maintaining your mental health.
Understand your own limits and triggers and don’t be afraid to express yourself and what you need.
You may love or interact with innumerable people over the course of your life, but the person that matters the most is the one you face in the mirror.
Take care of the person you see reflected there.
