Angie Arendt

“Self-care is never a selfish act. It is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give it the care it requires, we do so not only for ourselves but for the many others whose lives we touch.”

― Parker J. Palmer, Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation
