Have you ever just felt blah and overextended? You’re exhausted from taking care of others - mentally, physically, emotionally, you name it - and you can’t even fathom who you are anymore?
Like, where do you begin, and where do they end? Is there even a line to distinguish you from everyone you help?
I realized that I am in control of my life. Life is happening around me and to other people because I decided to stay in my comfort zone. Being introverted and careful of whom I share my energy with, I was content with being stagnant. And that was my aha! Moment.
Girl, you are in control of your life. You can’t take care of others until you take care of yourself.
Let me say it again: You cannot take care of others until you take care of yourself.
I started dedicating time for self-care. Let me tell you: an hour of me time is EVERYTHING.
Once I realized that I can’t take care of others until I take care of me, life happened, honey. And the best part?
I was happy. Like, legit happy.
The only change I made was making time for me - giving myself a block of time for a nice, hot shower, or buying a gift for myself, or turning on a podcast and going into cleaning mode because cleaning can be therapeutic, too.
That’s right - I just started taking care of myself.
I realized I wasn’t the only one with this issue of not taking care of myself - my friends were going through the same situation. Giving themselves to others so much that they always put themselves on the back burner and say, “I’ll do it someday.”
That “someday” is today.
The transformation - from caterpillar to soaring butterfly - is you realizing that you have to make time for you. You’ve worked and worked, and isolated for transformation into your best self. You’re now a soaring butterfly putting herself first. Self-care is vital to your wellbeing.
Our handcrafted and hand-poured candles are created in small batches - extremely small batches. We make no more than 50 candles at a time as we want to provide you with the highest quality product. Each slab of wax is hand cut; each pot of wax is stirred by hand; each ounce of fragrance oil is measured by hand; each wick is placed by hand.
At Yellow Butterfly Candle Company, we believe self-care, gratitude, and personal evolution is critical to one’s journey to relaxing and evolving into the best version of themselves. Every candle’s product page comes not only with a fragrance description, but a suggested self-care method for you to use as your dedicated me time.
