First, music. I am listening to a lot of great music lately. This is one song that I love. I love Ed Sheeran. This Ed song makes me happy every time I hear it.

What am I gonna do this week for a self care activity? Well, Bee recommended some great reads in her latest post. I encourage you to take a look at it to get some great suggestions for new self improvement books to read.

For myself, I think I am going to start reading you are a badass by Jen Sincero! It looks like a great read! And I think I’d enjoy it immensely!

And we can all use a little self improvement, right?

Right! So that’s on my to read list this week! 😀

I hope ya’ll have a fab Monday! Remember, be a badass!

The weekend!

Tomorrow my mom and sister are going camping, without us. I decided I wouldn’t go. Its not my thing, really.
I will stay at my parents though for the weekend with my dad. I plan on catching up with friends this weekend. I plan on visiting Norma on Saturday, and my friend Rose on Sunday. Monday will be a rest day, unless I decide to go to the movies with some of the members of the basement club, I am still thinking about it.
I will miss my mom this weekend. My dad is not the easiest to get along with. I always prefer to have my mom here. Also its a big thing for me to say I will miss her. A year or to ago I’d have never said that. So yeah progress!
Im planning on having a nice weekend though. I will also put some self care activities in to help me cope. Some nice hot showers, time to read, watch some tv, a treat for the kids, blogging, etc.

Question of the day

Do you find practicing self care hard and why? What do you do for self care activities?

For me I find self care to be a challenge. I try hard to do it though even when it seems to be difficult. I find doing some self care things really helps boost my mood and it helps me not to feel so depressed.
How about you?

i completed most of my goals today. Even though I only got 3 hours of sleep! i ate healthy meals. i showered. i went to therapy. I exercised for 30 minutes. I didnt visit my friend, because she wasnt free this evening, but I will wait for another day to do that. I still have to read, but I will read before I go to bed tonight. I am going to watch some tv, as my self care activity, take 2 hours for myself and watch britains got talent and the soaps. I still need to clean, Must do dishes in a little while. But overall I am happy with todays goals and my progress in achieving them.
