Affirm 21

I am my own guardian.
I am my own nourishment.

Emily’s Affirmations

I confess this is more of an aspiration than an affirmation. Over the past few years, I’ve learned how challenging it is to be our own source of nourishment. But I’ve also had glimpses of how rewarding it is.

There are days when I want to be cared for, nourished, and seen by others. And there are days when I recognize my own company is all I need.

Here’s the secret: being our own caregivers, guardians, and source of nourishment is always what we need. It is always enough, even when it feels like it’s not.
