Mindfulness for empowerment? Yes! Take 5 minutes now or 5 later, but try this today. In the excitement of work, family and life, I have to consciously make time for self-care. There are times when I find it difficult to believe that I deserve to be so happy and am not as open as I should be to receive love. This is human, yet something I can work on. Instead of spending energy worrying, I could be cultivating a place of goodwill that allows happiness to flourish. Join me in taking care of ourselves so that we can be strong to help others.
