Does it feel like you are walking around empty? Are you waiting for someone to come along and fill you up? What if they show up and their cup is only half full – and they pour into yours – what is left for them? Doesn’t seem fair does it? What if you both show up with cups overflowing? Yes, those are a lot of questions …. but you are thinking about it …. so that is a good thing.

YOU are the only one who can fill up your own loving cup – with LOVE …. self-love. That is why it is called a ‘loving cup.’ It is not called the Pity Cup – oh yes, many are walking around with cups overflowing with pity; usually self-pity. Now how sexy and appealing is that?

A loving cup spilling over and gushing all over the place, dripping and oozing the juices of life – hmmm, now that sounds a little more sexy and appealing, doesn’t it?

Every time we take a few moments for ourselves: in prayer, meditation, deep breathing, stretching, walking, sipping a cup of tea, or sitting under a tree – we fill up our own loving cups.

If we come to each other with our cups full of self-love we have a much greater chance of loving, fulfilling and healthy relationships. We cannot run around expecting others to give us a drop here and a drop there or pouring all of our cups into the empty cup of another – if we know not how to refill our own loving cups. Oh, there is no greater gift than to completely fill the cup of another – but only if we truly know our own empty cups will fill again and again from an endless Source. We can tap into this endless Source anytime we choose. When we take daily, those precious few moments for reconnecting to this Source from a place of self-love and gratitude – our cups will never be empty.  Dharlene Marie Fahl
