I decided to do some self care today. So after dinner I went shopping with my mom and my sister.
I bought some new clothes. A new sweatshirt, a pink one, and a new pink sweat pants. And a pair of comfortable flat shoes.
I feel so good after doing all that. It was a nice distraction. I feel good about myself, and I feel happy with what I bought.
Going to enjoy the rest of my evening now, have a cup of tea and read, watch a little tv, and have an early night tonight.
I have planned some nice things to do today for self care.
Have a long hot bubble bath.
Go out with mom for a few hours.
Read my book, start a new one.
Eat nutritious meals.
Journal, or write a poem.
Laugh, a lot.
happy as can be
hair all done
feel so beautiful
blow dried to perfection
or to my perfection
pretty as a picture
or so I think
Doing this one thing
Has made me feel great
As I celebrate international womens day today
We should treat ourselves more often
Self care is so important
With every act of self-care your authentic self gets stronger, and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker. Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration: I am on my side, I am on my side, each day I am more and more on my own side.
Susan Weiss Berry
Day four of the challenge. I cant believe I’m four days in!
Today I am doing it a little different. Instead of sayihng something I love about myself, I am going to say something that I do for myself, a lot.
That is, self care. I love that I take opportunities to practice self care regularly. I feel its so important to do this on a regular basis.
If we arent kind to ourselves, then we wont be able to be there for others, we wont be able to look after anyone else if we dont look after ourselves, first.
Today, I love myself because I allow myself to be kind to me. I practice self care, I practice loving kindness for myself.

An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.
