The lovely thing about some self-care is that it requires no money, no designer clothing, no ipod, no nuthin.
After a time of taking on others’ problems, worries and crises, it is nice to melt into the environment, watch the butterflies in the park, smell the cool spring breeze and remember, I am alive
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore

For me, I know it is also at that moment of exhaustion that a meditation is important.
