Taking The Time

It is extremely important to take care of your spiritual self, just as it is to take care of your physical body. I know for many of us (especially those of us who are mothers) we spend our time and energy taking care of others and often neglect ourselves. When this happens you begin to deplete yourself and you become tired. Physically tired, emotionally tired, just tired. It may seem like you have absolutely NO time to do anything else, but trust me, you have time to take care of you.

There are many small things you can do to realign yourself with yourself, with the natural world, with spirit, with your faith. It can be as simple as taking your morning coffee or tea out onto your porch/balcony/somewhere outside (or sit by an open window so that you can feel the sun and the air on your face) and just relax and enjoy. Maybe it is morning meditation, walking the dog or sitting in front of your altar, lighting a candle or two and chanting. Or just sitting there completely silent. You have to take care of your spiritual self. If you are very limited on time, set an alarm. Allow yourself fifteen minutes of uninterrrupted time. Just like your car, you will need re-fueling to continue on your journey. This most definitely includes taking care that your spiritual and emotional needs are tended to the same as your dietary needs.

Take the time.
