Hi, world! I've been slacking a bit, so please forgive me. This is a super short post, but it was on my heart to share.
My pastor hosts Mid-Week Motivation on Wednesdays--they're super early so sometimes I miss them--but one of his recent ones was centered on self-care. I think it's something we can all do a better job of. He began by telling the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10 and then posed the question: Who am I in the story? He said that he and we are all three people in the story: the wounded man, the passersby and the Good Samaritan. What he said was that we all pass ourselves by instead of stopping to take care of our own needs.
To sum it up, his message was: Engage in radical self-care of yourself today and every day, for only then can you be an agent of healing and transformation for others. So do something for yourself today! Take a break and go for a walk. Go to the spa or get a pedicure. Or stop by your favorite smoothie place. Anything that is just for YOU. You're important, so take care of yourself.
P.S. Stay tuned for a full blog makeover + posts more frequently in the coming weeks.
