Reclaiming Self

Lately, I have really been trying to be mindful, and have a mind-body connection because I feel disconnected inside.  Logically I know stress can kill, but I put so much of myself into others, most days I often run on empty.

I repeat the mantra, “I have to take care of myself first, or I can’t take care of my family.”  But, somehow I still feel as if I am holding the short end of the stick.  Guilt overtakes me when I get a pedicure.  Many days, I’ve run a proverbial marathon before 6:50a, and as the girls get on the bus, I am left in a quivering puddle of nervous stress.
