I came across this article recently and it really spoke to me. I feel it captures a deeper way of looking at self-care particularly for mother's, and highlights the true importance of nourishing ourselves in order to continue mothering. The article uses an interesting play on words that I see the possibility of resonating with many mothers "in order to mother well needing to fill the mother well". The article gives space to the diversity of what this means for each mother, nourishing ourselves on a deep level, and connecting to our divine selves.
