Two cases presented illustrate the importance of integrating a self-care approach with one's own journey navigating health challenges. The authors are confident there are countless other personal examples and make suggestions on how to infuse personal and professional well-being, especially during times of crises. Nurses, as natural caregivers in all areas of our lives, are ultimate patient advocates. We are best served when we heed the lessons of self-advocacy with life, love, vulnerability, release what is not ours to fix, avoid overgiving, and accept with grace, the art of receiving.
