“What is Self-Care? Spoiler Alert, It’s Not On Your To-Do List It’s Self-Love. Today and Everyday
Self-care is your divine right to emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. It’s belief, intention and action. Self-care cannot be purchased. It’s not something ‘else’ to ‘fit in.’ It’s a mindset.
Society doesn’t champion Moms yet wants to conflate our self-worth with achievement. We’re cheerfully encouraged to busy-ourselves-to-death.
We work unsustainable schedules, to pay for unaffordable childcare. It’s a tiring race to the bottom.
In the trance-of-busy, we push healthy to ‘someday’ when it’s ‘easier’ for everyone else. Self-care values your comfort, today. It is generosity with yourself, in ways that are possible, now. Self-care is unapologetic reverence for your own time. It’s belief that your family is stronger with you at your strongest. An investment that spills over into all relationships.
Outsource, spouse-source and set boundaries. You are worth more to your family than your to-do list. Your legacy will come from love, presence and endurance.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
