It's a necessity.
I know you're busy I know you work or have kids or tend to a significant other.
I know things have been bat shit crazy this yearI know you have things to do.
Hear me loud and clear when I say:
YOU ARE SO WORTHY OF THE CARE & TIME YOU GIVE TO OTHERS. Period.
When you give to YOU then you have more you can give to others.
I struggled with this leading up to my 2nd son and shortly after he was born, I couldn't take it anymore. I was exhausted, depressed, anxious and overwhelmed.
Yes my husband would push me out the door to go get my nails done or hike or spend time alone. But eventually I figured it out.
Yes leaving the house is awesome.
Yes getting a mani/pedi, hair done and massages are amazing.
So is a bath.
So is sleeping in
So is a nap
So is a walk around the block
So is reading for 10 minutes
So is journaling & meditating
So is exercise
Self care doesn't have to cost a damn thing
But it DOES cost you if you don't do it.
So, pencil time for you in.
Ask for help where needed.
If you have kids, take 10-30 minutes when they go to bed to do something electronic free for you.
I promise, the time you give to you will be felt in those around you
Remember... You are SO WORTHY of the love, care, patience and time you give to others.
I promise you--the self care you give to YOU, in whatever way that looks like to you, will be felt by those around you.
Sending you so much love!
