I cared for my Mom until she passed 15 months ago. And I am still caring for my Dad who lives in an ALF nearby me. I learned the hard way that my Sacred Self Care had to come first of I would swirl down the drain.
Much as I love and care for him, I must set aside time and practices that keep me strong and healthy.
I teach a Sacred Self Care class, that's how important I have come to view this issue!
I know it's hard to carve out time for ourselves but it's essential. I had surgery in November..and I'll never know if it could have been avoided if I had taken better care of ME during Mom's illness.
I am passionate about this Sacred Self Care issue. I hope you are too!
