Bigger Picture Moments {Featuring Brook}

Every Thursday, we come together to share the harvest of intentional living by capturing a glimpse of the Bigger Picture through a simple moment. And this month, February, we’re adding a little twist — LOVE. Won’t you join us on this last Thursday of February?  Reflect upon something simple but lovely: a memory, a proposal, a falling, a feeling, a connection.  And share it with us!

Here’s a bit of a post from Brook’s post last week, Selfish Love.  Click through to read the rest!

Then I thought WHY am I feeling guilty about this. WHY should I feel guilty about loving myself so much that I would do ANYTHING to make sure I get that 45 minutes of bliss?

As a mother and wife I beat myself up over not being there enough, not being attentive enough to OTHER people’s needs. BUT WHAT ABOUT ME?
Some would say I’m selfish. However, I remember what a friend told me right after I had E, she said “Make sure your oxygen mask is on first, then put everyone else’s on.” In a nutshell…take care of yourself first, so you can be there for those you love.

This week’s link-up is being hosted by Melissa; head over to be inspired, share your moment, and encourage friends for the last of this month’s LOVELY Bigger Picture Moments!
