Y’all. We hate to admit it, but caring for our inner self might actually be harder than caring for our outer self. It’s such a long ingrained habit, particularly in women, to put everything and everyone before ourselves and if something must fall off the day’s checklist it’s the thing we were doing for us – that bath, that pedicure, that 10-minute meditation. It takes a lot of brain re-training to see this spent time as absolutely essential rather than self-indulgent. But ladies, it is absolutely essential. There’s the old adage about not being able to pour from an empty cup, and it’s so true; you can’t pour into others what you don’t have to give.
