Is Your Tank Empty?

This Sparked Me!

So often we spend much of our time and energy doing for others. We need to remember to always take time for ourselves. If we don't, we'll run out of gas. It doesn't have to be hours. A soak in the tub or a short walk often gives us time to refuel our own tanks! emoticon

    Result of too much seeing to all else results in nohing being done, and the only true ill effects are yours. I agree that it is extremely difficult, and so much easier to see outside needs.

    You are soooo right (as usual). We often forget to take care of ourselves. I'm very guilty of that. I really do like your remarks. It will make me stop more and remember that I am important too. emoticon

    This is so true. We always put us last & if we don't keep our self going, we can't do for others. A wonderful candle and soft music helps relax me.
