If you are always looking for other people (or things) to make you happy, you will never truly be happy. True happiness starts with you. Start taking a look at yourself, your daily actions, and your personal belief systems. It is important to take a little bit of time for yourself each day. Remember, giving yourself permission for self care means you are giving everyone around you the best of your, not what is left of you. You cannot give what you don’t have and you cannot pour from an empty vessel. Take the time to care for and fill yourself up, you will thank yourself (I promise).
