I don’t know how to do it.
We are three weeks into the new year now and things have been a little rough. I haven’t posted in a couple weeks and that was not my intention at all. I even tried to have a scheduled post out but I never actually finished writing it. I’ve been so busy with work and I’ve been keeping my off days busy. In the three days I’ve head off in these two weeks, I’ve washed my hair and went out on the weekend. There will be a wash day routine/essentials post coming soon though.
So on the topic of self care I find that I am not the greatest when it comes to applying that in my life. I usually don’t know when to slow down, when to breathe, or even when to stop. I came across a photo on Pinterest on my day off the other day and it hit me in a way I can’t really explain.
It struck me that although I try, I could definitely be doing more to really set myself in a good space. I keep trying to find some kind of routine, but I work retail. I don’t exactly have that option which really throws a lot of things out of whack for me.
Just yesterday I got a message from a friend of mine and she was checking in, and I don’t know but something about the way she worded it really warmed my heart. At the end she said “Remember people love you” and I just about cried. For the past maybe say six months I’ve been on this emotional rollercoaster and everything is fine, except that it’s not. So I’m working on that. I’m also going to work on taking more time for myself to do things I really enjoy.
Self care is an important part of life and work and I think that we should all really be taking the time to do the little things that make us feel better. Just a quick reminder to make sure you’re taking the steps needed to make you our best you.
