Never throw out Anyone, including Yourself!

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. ~ Audrey Hepburn

I want to add to the end of Miss Hepburn’s quote, including yourself. When we are in that limbo stage of staying where we are or taking that step forward into the unknown we tend to forget about ourselves and only think about everything and everyone else. When you start your new business or you’re looking for ways to increase your client base don’t forget that you also have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; so never throw “yourself” out, by putting yourself on the back burner. Take care of yourself as you’re putting in those long hours of building your business, getting ready for the holidays and all that that brings into your life! There’s a Haitian Proverb that says “Beyond the mountains there are mountains again,” so you have to continue through the process by taking a step back, breath, look at the progress you’ve already accomplished, the goals you’ve already achieved, and pat yourself on the back for a job well done so far. If you burned out then you will not be any good to your clients, your business, your family, or yourself, and those mountains that won’t go away will seem too hard to climb so you will hit that proverbial wall and do nothing.
