I was in the park the day after a big rain. The sky was still grey and it was definitely still drizzling out. And the creek, the creek was massive. It was overflowing its banks, rushing and running so fast. Rocks that were normally visible were hidden under the rush of waters. It was large, and quick and a little dangerous.
The creek had so much more power and strength then it normally does. It could do things faster and with so much more force. It took up more space and affected the banks around it with its extra water.
All because the creek allowed a source outside itself to fill it.
Ok, ok, I know....the creek did not make a choice to allow the rain to fill it, that was a bit of a stretch there. But go with me.
We are stronger, we are more powerful, we can get life done better when we allow ourselves to be filled, when we allow ourselves to find ways of self-care, when we show up for ourselves and give ourselves permission to be fed.
What does allowing yourself to be filled look like to you? How do you take care of yourself best?
May we, this week, allow ourselves to be filled, give ourselves permission to take a little self-care time in whatever way that looks like to you.
Have a wonderful weekend dear friends, I am so very grateful for you.
