Why self care in the midst of such suffering?

I find myself thinking about why self care in the midst of global suffering.  It's not to be lost on most of us that this is a challenging time in the history of our planet, of humanity, of animal and plant life.  I don't know what it is to come.  What I do know, however, is that it's my job to run my leg of the race, to do what is in my power to do.  

In my power, is to remind myself and remind you, that you matter.  Your life has meaning.  You feeling connected to your feelings, needs, and life vision matters.  You feeling nourished and supported matters.  This is not to say that other peoples' needs, feelings, visions do not matter.  On the contrary, I believe that our self care is connected to our community care, and our community care is connected to our self care.  We cannot have one without the other.

For today, may you connect to a vision of wholeness, peace and shared humanity.  May you remember grace and love, may you spread love and receive love.

I see you.  I know this is not easy.  Keep trusting.

With love,

Steph
