Your Roots are Showing

on January 27, 2013

If you could wash away the sands of time you might be able to see your roots—the things you learned in your earliest childhood, the teachings you gleaned from your parents and ancestors without ever being aware that you were learning.

What of your roots is visible to you at this moment?

My mother has always been a helper. There were times when I even call her a martyr. She helps to an extreme. She never has any thought of herself. It used to upset me that she would give too much. she has had a myriad of health problems – everything from heart disease to breast cancer. She has survived them all. I thought I would lose her when she had her triple bypass. Then, I was afraid when she had cancer. She is now cancer free and her heart is better. But she still continues to give with all her heart and spirit. I have learned much from this woman. I have learned that you must love as if you will never be hurt. Self love should be included in that. One must learn to balance what you do for others with what you do for one’s self. In order to obtain that balance, we must learn to love others as our self – unconditionally. Get to know yourself. Know what your limits are. I do for others but I have learned when to say no. If I feel that I cannot give, then I say no. I do not feel guilty about it either. How can I be of any use to anyone if I am sick or hurt. I must love myself (and others) enough to keep myself healthy. Only then can I give my all and love as I will never be hurt.
