National Family Caregiver’s Month Day 15

Mud MIll -Mary Ann
Mary Ann cared for her parents until they died, and still had to be available to everyone else.

 Be Kind

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

What is the first thing you say to yourself in the morning, and the second and third? Is it negative? If so, start a new habit today! Start the day reading or listening to something that uplifts you. Write down 3 things you appreciate about yourself. You don’t have to reach for something BIG, it could be as simple as getting dressed as if you were going out of the house. Maybe you got a goodnight sleep. It could be filling a bird feeder to enjoy watch songbirds from the window. Treat yourself as you would a friend in need; you would not be hurtful but reassuring. Reassure yourself!

What matters most? You are enough!
