live love + self-care

 

When life gets busy it is so easy to take ourselves off of the priority list. In reality it is ourselves that need to be prioritized first. You can not pour out of an empty cup, so taking the time to care for yourself is not just needed it is necessary. Fill yourself up with the things that you love, so that when you are needed in the world you have plenty to share.

How often do you truly take the time to care for yourself and your own heart? You are more than worthy of the time and effort of self care. Make yourself a priority.
