Self-care is not selfish or self-indulgent. We cannot nurture others from a dry well. We need to take care of our own needs first.

Quote of the Week

In everyone’s life there are people who stay and people who go and people who are taken against their will.

~Karen Joy Fowler

Quote of the Week

You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free.

~Shannon L. Alder

Quote of the Week

Wherever your life ends, it is all there. The advantage of living is not measured by length, but by use; some men have lived long, and lived little; attend to it while you are in it.

~Michel de Montaigne

Quote of the Week

Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but actually you’ve been planted.

~Christine Caine

Quote of the Week

You are the only person who is in charge of how you feel about yourself. Nobody else can possibly do that. You get to decide if you believe you are beautiful or not, and nobody can take it away from you. If someone suggests that you aren’t beautiful, you can consider how sad it is that they have such a limited view of beauty. You can consider how unfortunate it is that they have such an exaggerated sense of self-importance that they think you should care about what they think. You can also choose to realize that it has nothing at all to do with your beauty and everything to do with their limitations.

~Ragen Chastain

Quote of the Week

I used to fight the pain. But recently, this became clear to me: pain is not my enemy: it is my call to greatness.
