Lessons from Single Mom Lifeclass: The Golden Rule of Single Parenting

Iyanla Vanzant said this on Oprah’s Lifeclass for Single Moms - and I can not tell you how many times I’ve given the same advice to a woman who is considering leaving her marriage or a mom who is at the end of her rope, feeling burnt out - "You can not give what you do not have."

I believe this to be the golden role of single parenting. You can’t afford to lose yourself in the role of a parent because if you can not give what you do not have!  You can’t afford to not take care of yourself. You can’t afford to settle for less than what you deserve. You can’t afford to not pursue your dreams. Because you can not give what you do not have.  

Go fill up - on the life you have, the love that is around you and the dreams of what you want to do.
