Am I Taking Care of My Self ?

Sunday, November 24, 2013

"What are you doing to take care of yourself" asked my friend Paula this morning.
Bingo. That is the right question.

The way of wood in water…. carried by the stream…. is NOT taking care of my self.
Eating for comfort is not taking care of myself.
Care taking / people pleasing in order to have "connection" is not taking care of myself.

Healthy Boundaries IS the definition of Taking Care of My Self… and Others Too.

Having them. Setting them. Keeping them. Being Clear about them.

Meditating on this today.
More to come.

    I have been blown away at how setting boundaries - a concept that seems to suggest walls, enclosures, divides - has actually served to free me and enable me to be closer to people in ways that I couldn't before there were boundaries. How funny is that?

    I wish you great success in the challenging endeavor of self-care.

    Kinda like something I heard in class this morning, we each need create our own mantas or creeds and stand by them.

    God bless & keep warm....
