Having had a respite on the beautiful California coast, I posted this picture and a friend replied, “YAH! For self care!”
My view during a morning walk-awe inspiring-
I was tickled as I read these words-YAH for self care! She was right!
YAH for slowing down-YAH for taking a nap-
YAH for focusing on one thing at a time-
YAH for eating slowly-
YAH for going for a walk and taking in the fresh air.

Remember, when you serve others, you can only give the very best of yourself.
