Do you care for others? Do people look to you for help, strength and support? Are you a healer? Then you probably routinely put others' needs first... right? Yet caring for people takes energy, and in this fast-paced world it's so easy to lose our true selves to the care that we provide.

We can make it better one person at a time.
