Do you practice self care?
I sure do.
When it is time for Amy self care -
I read. or write. or take myself out to dinner. or watch a movie. or go for a latte and people watch. or create a necklace. or go for a walk downtown. or spend time in my garden.
or whatever makes me happy at that moment.
Self care is soooooo very important.
I feel it's the foundation of you.
Some people seem to get confused about self care.
They mistakenly call self care acts "selfish".
This fires me up!
There is a huge difference in practicing self care and
Self care is never ever selfish.
You have to take care of yourself first!
Taking care of yourself makes you a better you all around.
You'll be happier, healthier, and will be able to
take better care of others.
We must fill ourselves up first with self-love and respect.
When we are filled, then we have enough to give to others.
You cannot give from an empty well.
You have a right to say no to
people/situations without explanation.
You are in control of you and your life.
You decide how much you want to handle.
Remember making yourself a priority and loving yourself doesn't make you selfish.
It makes your soul shine!
