Are you running low on energy today? If you answered yes, it might be because you are so busy taking care of everyone around you, giving of yourself, or working too much. It's necessary to allow ourselves to be cared for, renewed and refreshed. The truth is we are little value to others when we are running on empty. We we are trapped in the cycle of sacrifice and self neglect it is nearly impossible to be the best we can be for those we love. We need to take some time for ourselves to we can be the best physically, emotionally and spiritually. If you are suffering from self-neglect, running on empty and feeling like you are at the end of your rope, don't feel guilty about taking care of yourself. Get alone with God, take time to do what energizes you most. Call a time out for yourself, ask for help, whatever it takes, take some time for just you. Not in a selfish way, but in a way to refresh your mind and body so you can be the best you need to be for those you love. This will also allow you to connect with God better. What are one or two things you can do to take time for yourself? Where do you need to ask for help in order to feel renewed or refreshed?
