I saw this awesome quote this weekend: “you can’t fill someone else up if your cup is empty.” And while this isn’t a new theme that I’m bringing to baileydailey, I think it bears repeating (and repeating and repeating.)
You can’t help others if you don’t help yourself. So take time out at least one day a week to do absolutely nothing or something for yourself.
And if you really have a hard time rationalizing that “selfish” action, think of the cup. Tell yourself that it’s your duty — to everyone else. (Sometimes that’s the only way I can do it.)
So, fill your cup. If only to drain it again.
