Sacred Self Care | Fall in Like with You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

She came to understand that her own happiness was a choice, so she made a promise to herself to hold her own well-being sacred. ~ Queenisms™

We’ve said it before but it needs to be said again. Let’s take the “ish” out of selfish. It is not selfish to take care of yourself. It is a gift to others as well as yourself. When you are healthy, happy, safe, secure and whole, you are a better person, period. Take care Queens.

    Life can change really quickly. In the last 6 months or so my hubby has been very ill. I went through the stage of being that type of carer where the caring takes over your whole life. The problem with that is you burn out. I now have learned to put ‘me’ in there and take time out for myself. You know what? I am a lot happier which in turn makes me a far better carer for the hubby. We can take on a role (which society expects) that is not only tiresome but destructive to ourselves. There is nothing ‘selfish’ about looking out for yourself. 🙂

    First Adele, we’re so sorry that your husband is seriously ill and that this illness is taking center stage in both of your lives. But oh, how proud of you we feel and how inspiring you are to other women as you speak, first hand, about the importance of putting you on the daily “to do” list. When we share our stories, we share our strength. Thank you.

    I have had this Queenism on my desk for some time. It speaks to me on a deep level as one whose life is engulfed with “illness taking center stage in our lives.” According to others, I do not look, sound, or “act” chronically ill. People generally have a hard time believing that I am living with multiple debilitating invisible disabilities. Hence, I find myself continually overdoing in an effort to participate in life by being a “good” wife, being a “good” friend, or being supportive of others, all at the expense of not taking care of myself or my health. This quote reminds me that our personal well-being is indeed sacred and that by setting boundaries, saying no, and taking care of ourselves we embrace and are in touch with the Sacred and Divine.
