Spidey’s Serene Sunday #427 – Empty Pot

“You cannot pour from an empty pot.”

Sissy Gavrilaki

Thank you, Spidey, for this quote.

I think it’s very important to remember this, especially if you are someone who has many plates to keep spinning, constantly.

That’s me.

Work, home, writing. Appointments, data, deadlines. Feeding, caring, creating…

It’s constant.

And we’ve had a death in the family, too.

My go-to is to want to care for everyone, spreading myself thinly, so I miss nothing, but recently, someone who cares for me reminded me that I need to look at my own mental health, and well-being first, followed by my little family.

Everything else comes after.

And I agree.

This weekend, I’ll make sure there are breaks involved, where I’m replenishing my pot.

So, Peeps, are you good at recognising when you need to refill? 😊

    An excellent reminder from your someone who cares for you. Yes, those of us who are constant givers need to step back and take self-breaks. Hugs to you, Ritu! πŸ’•

    Not really but the truth is
    1 if we don’t look after ourselves no one else will.
    2 if we go down who will look after everyone one else
    3 no one is indispensable… Life goes on whatever.
    Love you Sis look after you! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
