“If you make a strong commitment to yourself, you make it clear that you will use all the courage it takes to live your truth. You make it clear that you want to live in unity and in love and in joy that naturally follows all these things.”
Barbel Mohr, The Cosmic Ordering Service
If you always give your energy away, you will be left depleted without the ability to recharge your batteries. While serving others brings with it great joy, if you do not take care of yourself, you will be left with nothing to give. One of the greatest acts of self-love is when you make a strong commitment to your true self. With this commitment, you choose to surround yourself with uplifting messages so that your spirit is nurtured. You choose to get enough rest so that your mind stays clear. You choose to get the proper nutrition and exercise so that your body can function efficiently. And you choose to honor your intuition so that you stay aligned with your purpose here on Earth. In a world where there are a lot of demands, it takes a lot of courage to make the choice to put your self first. While there are instances where sacrifice is a commendable virtue, in general, the martyr complex does not add to a life of unity, love and joy. By daily deciding to strongly commit to your own wellness, you make a conscious choice to strive to live a life in harmony with your surroundings. Only then will you be able to nurture your heart light on the inside, as the world watches you enlighten up on the outside.
