Affirmations for Caregivers
During the month of September, this substack content will be focused primarily on conversations around the caregivers, birth workers, and doulas so I’ve put together a few affirmations that will help you on your journey in birth work.
Take your time with each affirmation. Read it, Close your Eyes, Breathe in deeply. On your exhale, say the affirmation either out loud or in your mind, and visualize the message traveling your body from head to toe as you breathe out. Exhale completely and sit quietly for a beat before taking another breath in and moving on to the next affirmation.
I give from my overflow, not from my well.
I acknowledge how taxing being a caregiver can be.
I am doing the best I can. I can give myself a moment now to gather my thoughts. I can stop and be still.
I deserve time for myself and can attend to my own emotional, physical, and spiritual needs without guilt or apology.
I continue to learn and take responsibility for my boundaries by noticing my limits and advocating for myself.
I am human and will make mistakes. When I do, I expect to forgive myself generously.
Who I am and what I do makes a difference.
I will do something for myself today.
Thank you for being here. <3
