Living My Values

After stressing out about arriving late to some early morning meetings, I realized I wasn’t honoring my value of easing into my day. I was committing to someone else’s timeline and not recognizing my prior commitment to myself.

“The important thing in life is to have a center so sound that nothing outside ourselves can disturb it.” ~ Joan Chittister, In a High Spiritual Season

Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Goddesses Never Age, uses the imagery of the nursing mother to encourage women to take care of themselves. She points out that a nursing mother who hasn’t slept or eaten properly is less likely to be able to produce milk.

I shared the wisdom with a group of women and one woman expanded the vision to include the expectations that sometimes accompany our giving, especially when we’re giving from a space of lack or depletion…
Giving from a place of lack is like breast-feeding your child and expecting a thank you.” ~ Clarissa Lester Kenty
