Note to self, vol 1 (on caring)

Hi sweetheart,

You care. You care so much and I see it. Everyone sees it.

I see you getting involved in all that caring, and just wanting everything to come out so well for everyone.

Here are some of the best ways you can be caring:

  1. Show up. You’re already doing this, and you need do nothing more.

  2. Take good care of yourself. Nurture your boundaries, get to know them, and be an example of respecting them. This will create a ripple effect of love and generosity that you can’t now see the end of.

  3. Be generous with the things of which there is an infinite source: love, generosity, open-mindedness, optimism, and believing in the power of others. Defend that of which you have limited supply: time, energy, the people you care most about, and the choices you make every day. Believing in your own generosity and the power of others, while defending your time and energy, is the recipe for greatest impact.

I see you, I love you, and I know you can do it.

-Your loving heart.
