Good Saturday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: love yourself enough to take time for yourself. When you love yourself enough to eat healthy, work out, and pray or meditate you’re showing yourself respect and care. You may get so busy with the kids, job and/or life you run out of time to take care of you. You reach for comfort foods instead of hugs, you give your child a cookie instead of encouraging words, and you’re so exhausted by day’s end that a date night takes too much energy. Your kids like the cookies, but they’d rather have your time. Your body likes the sugar, but your liver is getting sick and fat, and your partner feels alone and rejected. STOP, PAUSE, PRAY. This is not the lesson you wanted to teach your children. This is not respecting yourself. This is not the ever after you wanted. Kids learn self-respect when you model self-respect by taking care of yourself.
