These are two questions I will be asking myself in 2013.
How do I achieve these states of being?
Like most people at the beginning of the year, I look back to see where I have been while also looking forward to decide where I want to go.
This January, I feel tapped out; as a friend, daughter, aunt. I just feel spent.
Decades of giving and not putting myself first has finally caught up with me.
And, I am empty.
My olive branch has no more leaves left on it.
I am a thoughtful, caring person and while I will continue to be, I need to figure out who is deserving of me. Relationships are about give and take not just take.
I must begin to put myself first and if people fall by the wayside, so be it.
