Most of us are constant givers and people pleasers; giving of ourselves at the detriment to ourselves. I have rarely looked after myself to the extent that I look after others, rarely committed to myself in my own life.

On one level, I know this is not sustainable - the flight attendant always tells us to put on our own air mask before assisting others. It is a self destructive practice to leave yourself out of the care equation.
*
If you give and give and give to others, and don’t give to yourself, or allow yourself to receive; you WILL at some point have no oxygen left, and you WILL pass out.
*
Today, I make a commitment to myself. I know it is not the first time and I know it will not be the last, and that’s okay. Committing to myself is a journey, not a destination, so I will need to re-commit many times. I will forget, and then remember. I will falter, but I will pick myself back up and carry on. Some days I will feel weak, but then others, I will be strong. I will learn, and I will grow, and in this way, I will change the world.
