How do you feel today? Have you stopped long enough to know how you’re feeling? When you’re feeling unbalanced, what can you do to counterbalance yourself? We all struggle at times. Life is hard sometimes. However, we can make it better and help ourselves to feel better, regardless of what is going on.

Sometimes, when I’m feeling off or overwhelmed, I ask myself, in the grand scheme of things, what difference is what I’m currently dealing with going to make a year from now? A decade? Will I even remember it? I’d like to think that as I get older, I get wiser. Remember that book, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, and It’s All Small Stuff? When you’re in the thick of things, it’s hard to remember that it’s all small stuff, isn’t it? But before you can reach that conclusion, you need to know yourself and what you can do to lift yourself up when you’re down.

The Archangels always tell us to practice self-care, but I was thinking today, in order to do that, you have to be in touch with yourself and how you feel. I asked them to expand on this, and their response follows.

Question: You speak often about the importance of self-care. It seems that before you practice self-care, you need to be in the habit of being self-aware. Can you please address self-awareness?


You are correct. Before you work to bring more joy into your life, more healing, you must first be aware that you need these things. In order to be self-aware, you must make yourself a top priority. Before you respond that you must go to work to make money, so you can pay for lodging and food and take care of your family, along with everything else you are juggling, consider that if you do not take care of yourself, you will not be able to do any of those things well, if at all.

We know that you are busy. We know that you struggle to cover all the demands placed upon you. We know your life is often difficult. What we wish you to know is, if you make yourself a priority and make sure you have what you need to be at peace and joyful, all the stress you
