Self Care Isn't Selfish
Self care isn't selfish! That little sentence right there took me a long time to understand. I don't know about ya'll but putting yourself on the back burner for so long and putting everything else before you makes for a hot mess to clean up. 🤣
When you decide to start taking back your self care routine it's like the gates of abundance wrap its wonderful arms around you. One really doesn't realize that when they skip out on the love they need to give themselves everyone and everything is a target for regret.
Taking time out for a facial mask, a lip treatment or just a good old foot soak is a nice way to start getting back to self care. Is that the extent of self care? Absolutely not!
Your self care routine is what ever makes you feel amazingly loved and special. It's no joke when you go through life just living, trying to make ends meet, taking care of everyone but yourself. Before you know it the years have passed by and you finally stop to look in the mirror and be like (DAMN).
Yes, you don't even recognize the person staring back at you. You wonder how do I know this? I was that person. Heck by the time I noticed myself I was about 200lbs of muscle of course. 😂
No seriously, I had never weighed that much in my life and my husband a personal trainer 🙄 never said, hey babe you're getting kind of big. Bless his heart but YO SON.... he could have smacked that extra potato chip out my hand lol.
To those looking at this and are angry don't be. I'm not poking fun at anyone but myself. Remember, I can do that. In the words of Tabitha Brown, "That's My Business". 🥰
To those that are laughing, keep on laughing honey because I know you understand where I'm coming from.
Now, get on with your bad selves, your self care routine awaits and if you don't have one, no worries we got you!
