Be kind and gentle with yourself. You're a beautiful cosmic child of light, precious as the stars in the sky. Keep peace in your heart during the chaos of life. - Chantelle Renee

It is so important that you know how important you are. You are a child of the Universe, on a mission. You have things to do, people to meet, you are a significant person in the world. And while you are running to and fro, filling your hours with loving care and attention for everyone on your list.... What about you? When is it your turn?

In today's world, you almost need to make an appointment with yourself for some pampering... it is rough out there. You need something just for you. This differs for each person. Some consider gardening to be relaxing, I call it work. It just depends on who you are. For 'ME' time, you require something that you love; perhaps a bubble bath, a good book, a designer coffee,  or just a quiet moment of reflection.

All of these suggestions may clear your head and give you a chance to think, but the most crucial thing you need to know is that you are essential to everything. You need to be kind and gentle to yourself, you need to love yourself because you most certainly won't be able to care for others if you are not on top of your game. As per the instructions on every airplane: "Put the oxygen mask on yourself first, and then, attend to your children." In the same vein, you are the most important person to you, as well as everyone else. Take care.

"You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should." Desiderata - Max Ehrmann
