Taking care of ourselves

“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people's lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.” 
Melody Beattie
“I didn't have to scramble up and down
the ladder from despair to euphoria anymore,
trying to convince myself that life was either painful and terrible or joyous and wonderful. 
The simple truth was that life was both. 
Melody Beattie
