“Self-care is how you take your power back.”
– Lalah Delia
This is your Love Note to remind you to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!
6 years ago my mom almost didn’t wake up from a routine hysterectomy.
During the procedure, she had a massive stroke that left her temporarily paralyzed and she completely lost her ability to speak.
Fast forward to months after the stroke I asked my mom one simple (yet powerful) question….
“Why did you do this to yourself?”
“Because everybody needed something from me.”
My mom is a healer. A nurturer. A Lover. An over-giver.
Growing up I always saw this “other” perspective.
People coming in and out of her life TAKING from her what they need energetically and then leaving again.
(There are DEFINITELY such things as “energy vampires!”)
That was my mom. She gave so freely that is almost killed her.
I had the chance to interview her 4 years into her stroke recovery and her inspiration, encouragement, and advice on life was beyyyond profound!
She’s always been a wise ole bird, but NOW she knows that –
To take care of others you MUST take care of YOURSELF.
To help you get started on your DAILY self-care routine, I’m bringing back the 7-Day Self-Care Kickstart challenge!
Self-care can ONLY be done by the SELF soooo decide what your soul needs MOST today and do that.
It really can be that simple.
Wake up and ask your SELF “What do I most need right now to soothe my soul?”
You deserve your own love and attention more than anyone else in this world.
For when you treat yourself – you treat the world. xo
I’m curious to know…
