Care of inanimate and professions When it comes to computers and technology We pursue advancement, Looking for improvements, upgrades and development. For the furtherance of our success We work diligently through ups and downs And seek help to facilitate our promotion.
What about when it comes to ourselves? Do we take care of our bodies? Look after our emotional needs? Tend and nourish our spirits? To empower ourselves to be our best selves, And flourish in totality We refine the care of ourselves by knowing what we need.
It takes consideration and care to reap a full harvest. Observe with careful reflection, An awareness of cultivating Sense our well-being: A sowing, planting and raising So that we may reap of the investments, A full harvest, By the time our lives are done.
Self care is uppermost in my mind at the moment. Often I get distracted by other people’s needs. I believe it is good to consider others and care for them but not at the expense of one’s own integrity and authenticity.
With covid 19 impacting our world and most of humanity suffering in different ways I am aware, as in Marlow’s hierarchy of needs (physiological, safety, love, esteem, and self-actualization), that many of us are worrying about our need for love, safety, money, food and housing; and so our esteem and self care might not really be a concern right now. Our self esteem and self care continue to be important even if we are not aware of it.
Enjoy your day, take care of your selves.
