“Self-care is never a selfish act – it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on this earth to offer to others.” (Parker Palmer)
In my journal of October 24, 2014, I reflected on this quote and wrote: “All I have to give the world is me. This is what God gave me the vessel for – to transport me from one place to another. No matter where I am, that is where I am meant to be with my cargo. Like a lunch wagon.”
Be yourself. Care for the vessel and the soul that is in it. You are God’s gift to the world.
