What Has Self Care Got To Do With Giving (And Enjoying It Too)?

Giving And ReceivingLast week I gave Stephen a massage.
Willingly.
Without him asking for it.
Without any thought of it being reciprocated in some
way.

I love it when I am in this ‘fullness of giving’ space.

It’s not always like this. Sometimes I feel I should do it,
(resentful martyr) or I want him to do it back to me,
(taking) or I do it cos I want him to repay the gesture
in some way (more taking) …..or I am in a rush to finish,
(more martyr) or I need to schedule it in, have everything
else finished, done or whatever…….(perfectionist, I think)

It felt so lovely to give myself the pleasure of giving
him pleasure and being in the moment. I can’t tell you how
heart opening and delicious it was for me (never mind him)
to be in this lovely fully giving energy……

It got me thinking. How had I got myself in this place?

Then it dawned on me.

I had ramped up my own self care over the previous 2
days.

I’d got myself so full of my own self love and care that I
had filled up my own ‘giving tank’ and it was overflowing.

He got the benefit of my full tank.

Next step, is to keep replicating…….set my life up in a way
that supports me to put myself first.

A lot.

Then I feel good, so good and can give some of that freely.

It all starts from self care and self love.

With love.
