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.
“Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.” Benjamin Franklin
A moment of self compassion, can change our entire day. A string of such moments, can change the course of your life. C K Germer
Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life; don’t allow this truth to grow fear, but allow it to spark creativity and space, to live in this moment as it is. –

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. John Maxwell
