Today I had some much needed alone time. Phew, time goes by too quick in between my times of solitude.
I felt like a brand new woman by the time I got home. I felt peace. I felt like I was where I needed to be in life. All I could think was that I wanted to sit in this peace for as long as I could. On the flip side, while I was in my solitude, I could only think of how important it was to me that my peace pours over into all the cups around me. I’m excited to have something to give. As human, we can get so depleted that our cup runs empty and we have barely enough left to take care of our loved one’s basic needs. Our own needs easily go unmet because of fatigue and limited time or resources. But I want to make sure I’m in a space where people have permission to feel at ease. I want to make sure my cup is full, so when the opportunity arises, I can fill someone else’s. I want to engage with others who have full cups and are also ready to overflow into other’s lives. I want to have a tribe who are ready to overflow into my cup when mine gets low. Or even better, they remind me to fill my own cup like giving myself solitude, silence, meditation, and taking the time to enjoy the healthy foods I love.
Goodness this post reminds me how important my circle is.
How do you fill your cup?
