There are a lot of problems, issues and injustice in the world. They come in various sizes and complexity levels. People from all over the world do their best to lend a helping hand. They make sacrifices with respect to time, money and energy to do so. In the pursuit of helping others in need, we tend to blur the lines of our priorities. These seemingly harmless attitude at the time will only serve to backfire if left unchecked. Yes, there are a lot of things that needs to be done and you might have the capability to do so. However, time and time again, there is a need to do some assessment and evaluation of our lives. And what many of those who are doing good work for the betterment of the society at large tends to suffer from, is an acute lack of self care. Putting others before themselves have moved from becoming a powerful slogan to an actual part of their lives. It is more than just a sense of pride that gets attached to the idea but something that is just is. However, in order to continue to be able to do good work, you need to take care of the most important person – yourself. Because if your cup is not full and over flowing, how can you then fill someone else’s up? So fit yourself into your to-do list and calendar. Do the things that lift you up and make you grow. When you actively do so, you will realise that you have an abundance in you that is craving to be channeled. And that is where sustainable form of service begins.
