July 27: Where have I betrayed my natural rhythm to meet others’ demands?
Five of Cups
I spend so much time cleaning up the cups that others spill that I am not present for my own cups. Thus, when some of my cups get knocked over, it feels overwhelming and defeating. I think, “how will I ever get this water back into these cups?! Everything is ruined!” Ultimately, this pattern is toxic for both me and the people I love. If I spent more time tending my own cups (my physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being), I could spend less time in regret, recovery, and grasping for care from others.
Affirmation: When all my energy is flowing outward, I lose my ability to balance, adapt, and care for myself.
