Motivation Monday 12: You can’t pour from an empty cup

Self care is an act of self-love.

Most of us, especially women, have been raised to believe that it is prudent to put other first and ourselves last. That we need to care for the needs of others while putting our own personal need in the non-priorities list.

Truth is, you need to make self-care and self-love a priority. How can you give something that you do not have? How you treat yourself is how you are inviting the rest of the world to treat you.

It is not selfish to refill your own cup, so that you pour into others. This is not a luxury, it is important.

Take care of yourself physically; mentally; emotionally and spiritually. Taking good care of you means that the people in your life will get the best version of you and not what is left of you.
