My mantra for the next little while.
Balancing out the lifelong expectations of being an adoptee; an existence for my mother’s and others’ happiness.
Give give give … until there wasn’t a drop left and I crashed.
“Care fully for myself” is my starting point before I make decisions on what to do for others and myself.
I risk sounding selfish but I am overdue for an energy audit that is based on the energy that I require as the mother of a son with a disability, a mother of three other children, and a grandmother of two gorgeous girls. And then there is the energy I need for myself. Now isn’t that interesting that I put myself last on this list. Hmmm.
Watch this space for changes …
