A Day Just For Me

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
~Eleanor Brownn

 

I’ve designated a day of rest. Today I have no agenda, no chores to do, and nowhere to be. I’ll leave the answering machine to take my messages. My emails will wait. And so will everyone else’s problems.

Today I shall sit in the sunshine with my feet in the soft grass. I’ll hang out with my husband. I shall nap whenever I want. I’ll cuddle my dogs, read a book, listen to music, or embrace silence.

I’ll fill the well back up.

Filling that well is so important.

I’ll be back tomorrow, refreshed and more ready for the flow of life again.

Much love to you, and thank you – from my heart to yours – for your love, kind words and support these past weeks. It means the world to me. ♥ xoxo

  3. Love title picture – lost our daschund Schnitzel earlier this year at the grand age of 13 1/2 and he too liked to lie with his tum in the air like the one in the picture. He always made resting look like total bliss…and I guess it is!!

  4. Dear Nicole, rest well and enjoy a day with your loved one and fur babies. Emotionally you must be exhausted after the time spent with your treasured friend Julie before her passing. Although we dearly love friends and family thier well being and what we give of ourselves to them can be draining and “self time” to recharge our own energy mentally and physically is needed before we can give more of ourselves. Enjoy your day. Sending love and wishing you a day of happy times to remember xx

  5. you so deserve all the support you get & more dear Nicole, thank You for being such an inspiration & generous soul to us all, every day xxx all the vey best
