Drive in my life is about helping others, but remembering to take care of myself along the journey. I’ve been a nurse for 20 years, and made a career change 7 years ago to another helping profession, social worker working in the mental health field. My drive comes from doing my best at every opportunity, as commanded in the Holy Bible:

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17 (KJV)

This blog was started to help others through sharing my personal experiences in self-care. I want to help others in finding balance in life. We are nurturers by nature, and often give more than we receive through our minds & bodies, and it can fulfill our souls. This, however, can lead to unbalance in life. Our drive to nurture can deplete energy from mind & body, leading to stress, fatigue, worry, fear, negative thinking, and anxiety. Drive in one aspect of life can leave holes in the other two aspects, and  we attempt to fill those holes with more drive and focus on the one aspect, in this case, the soul through nurturing.

We need drive in our lives, but don’t let your drive cause imbalance. Develop balance in your life by nurturing each aspect: mind, body & soul. Whatever your drive, in word or deed, don’t forget self-care and to nurture yourself. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t have much left to offer others. Drive & self-care, hand-in-hand, can lead to a well-balanced life.
