What do YOU need at this moment?

Welcome! Wander with me.....

We take care of everyone else, don't we? Women, especially, seem to be programmed to "do" for others, and in the process we lose ourselves along the way. We take kids to art lessons, dance class, LegoLand, and often yearn to try some of those things ourselves. 

But we most often don't follow through. And in the process we wither inside and die, slowly, one day, one tick of the clock at a time.

The adage is true: If we don't take care of ourselves, how can we possibly take care of anyone else effectively? We can offer nothing if we become.....nothing.

Do something for you today. Just for you. Make no excuses, offer no explanations. Honor yourself.
