“Don’t forget to pause and nourish yourself a bit along the way. When you’re born to help others sometimes you forget to help yourself.”
― Paula Heller Garland
Sometimes that pause to nourish is so, difficult to take. Women are born to give, after all.
They do bring life into the world, after all.
Their nurturing traits are part of their DNA.
And for those who help others professionally, ‘physician heal thyself’ can be harsh words to hear.
Much love to my anonymous model, a professional helper of people and mother, and nurturer.
