These Monday Meditations for Healing will include a "commitment to self" for caregivers (whether you are a health care provider or a family member caring for a loved one!) & an inspirational quote to reflect on for the week.
A Commitment to Self for Caregivers:
This week I will try to find 15 minutes of quiet time everyday. I will sit alone, breath deeply & relax in the stillness of not having to do anything for anybody but myself for just one moment.
Today's Quote (a favorite of my Mom's):
"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.
This is to be my Symphony."
- ~William Henry Channing
