Fix You First

When we take time to replenish our spirit and energy, it allows us to serve others from the overflow. We cannot serve from an empty vessel.  Eleanor Brownn


I was watching Jane Goodall being interviewed last night and they were discussing the chaos and unease in the world at present. They asked her opinion. 

“When we look at all the problems and pain in the world, it can feel overwhelming and can seem too difficult to change or believe we can make a difference; but when we start small, begin by looking at our own life, our own concerns first, we can begin to balance our part of the whole and this not only empowers us, but more importantly, has a ripple effect far greater than we will ever know.”

Each of us can achieve this balance within. Instead of feeling burdened by the world, feel empowered, by learning to fill ourselves up first. This way there is always an overflow of love, healing and energy to share with others.
