There are two ways the nurturer in you shows up - through the head, and through the heart.
When you caretake through your head, you make the world around you tidier, more functional, and easier for those around you. You clean up messes, organize chaos, create consistency, and hold the feelings, needs, outbursts, and belongings of those with whom you live, work, exist.
When you nurture through your heart, you provide a soft place to land, you heal, you understand, you listen, you love. Neither one is better than the other. Both are needed. Both are valuable. Both are underappreciated. Both ask a lot of you. Both are a part of you. Both, quietly, desire to be acknowledged.
When we acknowledge the ways we nurture those around us, it grounds us more deeply in ourselves. It teaches us how we are uniquely built to heal the world around us.
Take time to notice and honor the ways you show up that make an impact, the ways others are positively impacted by your presence and efforts, the ways you have matured, the ways you lead, everyday. Noticing all you do is the first step in mitigating the frantic rush of feeling there is still so much left to be done.
