You can’t pour from an empty cup & I was reminded of that simple truth today. My cup was empty - no more energy, patience or joy to give to my little guy so all that flowed out of me was anger (& a few years). As he headed off for a sleepover at his grandparents house I missed him the moment he walked out the door & I took a minute to think about the day - what went wrong?! Why did I come to the end of my day feeling like this?
My cup was empty & had been for a bit too long. We need to take care of ourselves too - whether you’re a mama or not. I can’t be a good wife, friend, mama if I don’t have anything left to give to the people I love. So I’m aiming to fill myself up this weekend - not only for myself but for the ones around me who I love so dearly♥️
