I feel like I have an endless supply of these, but I’ll try to limit it to three. And, as always, these are in no particular order.
1.) This Maya Angelou quote sums up a huge lesson I desperately needed to to have hammered into my skull–but I’ve got it now: When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.
2.) If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t keep taking care of others and continue to thrive (or in some cases, even survive) physically, mentally, and emotionally. Martyring yourself to everyone else’s needs helps no one.
3.) If something doesn’t feel right, it’s probably not. Trust your gut/intuition/whatever you want to call it.
